EROSION: landscape reveals us is an alternative performance + research encapsulation that explores and investigates the connective tissue between the human body and the land body. Through this research, I provoke the viewer’s thoughts about erosion in their own lives. We are all connected to a land that is eroding. We are all resisting gravity together, pushing against the same Earth-body supporting us. The performance is proposed as an open-ended thought: what is eroding in my life?

Our bodies tell the stories of the land.

Land tells the stories of our bodies.
