Join the Wheelwright Museum of the American Indian and the Georgia O’Keeffe Museum on Thursday, June 24, at 8pm (EDT) / 5pm (PDT) for an evening of dance and beauty. The virtual event will include the premiere of Following Enchantment’s Line followed by a panel discussion with the artists.
The O’Keeffe and Wheelwright museums have partnered to produce a short film, Following Enchantment’s Line, which celebrates the diverse cultural connections of Santa Fe, New Mexico.
Following Enchantment’s Line draws inspiration from the lines, shadows, and light seen across the northern New Mexico landscape, which has influenced many artists throughout time.
Directed by acclaimed filmmaker and artist Steven J. Yazzie (Diné/Laguna Pueblo/Anglo), the film showcases nationally renowned dancers Jock Soto (Navajo/Puerto Rican) and Harrison Coll. The soundscape features the music of classical composer Jerod Impichchaachaaha’ Tate (Chickasaw Nation). Coll has studied dance with Soto for 17 years at the School of American Ballet, the official school of New York City Ballet. This project marks the first time they are performing together.
