An NYC Ballet soloist is saying “I Am Enough” in the trailer for a groundbreaking new video which will premiere on National Coming Out Day (October 11).
“I Am Enough” is a dance film starring NYC Ballet Soloist Georgina Pazcoguin and Skye Mattox (from Steven Spielberg’s West Side Story, Broadway’s On the Town and granddaughter of infamous jazz choreographer, Matt Mattox) choreographed by Adriana Pierce (New York Choreographer’s Institute Alumni) and directed by Victoria Duncan.
Mirroring the style of Sia’s Elastic Heart music video, it will premiere on Daphne Willis’s YouTube page, later this week on National Coming Out Day.
The video will convey a lesbian couple overcoming the mental health issues and homophobia that come between their relationship.
This will set a precedent for queer representation in the often homogeneous ballet world in a way that has never been seen before. It will also inspire viewers to live and love without shame.
Let us know at @CelebMix if you are looking forward to seeing the video when it’s released!
