The experimental nature of Morning Dance explores the memories of first adolescent love and…consequently rejection. This updated version engages the themes of the original film while expanding its reach into maturity and how those early experiences with love and sex have effected the filmmaker’s subsequent relationships. Dance is used as a catalyst to dramatize everything from first flirtation, to the exuberance of courtship and sex, to the ending of the relationship, loneliness and regret.
