Cut Me Summa Dat Noise image.png

Cut Me Summa Dat Noise, a short film by Cara Hagan, celebrates the rhythms of everyday life through the eyes of a neighborhood matriarch (played by Deborah Mitchell) who sets the tone for a new day with the beat of her own heart.


As the neighborhood comes to life, people of all ages unite in a joyous cacophony of sound that illuminates the connections between them as members of a vibrant and diverse community in rhythm.


Choreographic collaboration by Cara Hagan, Margaret Morrison, and featured tap dancers.

Release: late 2024

Margaret’s tap dance choreography has been called by reviewers "a tour de force" and "the witty highlight of the evening." Her ensemble choreography has been commissioned by professional tap groups and college and youth ensembles around the US.
