The Principal Dancer

Valerie LeBlanc

2000, 06:30 minutes, colour


The Principal Dancer features a waitress at work, cleaning a school cafeteria. Memories of childhood friends at play are interspersed with images of her feet in the sand of a beach. Ghostly images of other workers wander through a dreamy existence. The radio is stuck between stations as the heroine's mind wanders. While the waitress passes a solitary work shift, a full moon of potential rules the night sky.
