RDT’s “landscape”  project  began in 1993 with  the commissioning of two New York artists. Choreographer Zvi Gotheiner and composer Scott Killian joined forces to create EROSION, inspired by the red-rock, canyon-lands area. The sculptural images in this piece create a timeless quality filled with reminders of the geology, the history, the inhabitants, and the expansive projection of space and time.

“In this land of light, rocks are elevated to sculpture and each earth gesture is a work of art.” (John Telford)
