Special Sneak Peek of Following Enchantment’s Line

The Wheelwright Museum of the American Indian and the Georgia O’Keeffe Museum partnered to produce a short film celebrating the diverse cultural connection of Santa Fe.

Directed by filmmaker and artist Steven J. Yazzie (Diné/Laguna Pueblo/Anglo), ‘Following Enchantment’s Line’ 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).

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. 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.
