* EROSION – 6:55 mins:
 
Erosion, as envisioned by Tina Rivera, Bryn McKay, Clark Phillips, Eve Bradford, Tarran Gabriel, Miguel Strong, Spencer Toll, traces the arch of sensuality along the earthly plane through form installations performed in the vast territories of New Mexico where the landscapes themselves direct the choreography. An original score composed by Dallas Acid provides the sensory orchestrations to this immersive experience where barrier between human and its elements dissolve. The artistic expressions within the film are provoked by the beat of life’s primal rhythms of pulling & joining, dividing & uniting, constantly perpetuating itself… to which they become a muse of this dance surrendering to the contours of the landscape.
