After a decade performing internationally with artists such as Aszure Barton and the Cullberg Ballet, acclaimed dancer Banning Bouldin returned to her hometown, Nashville, TN, to form NEW DIALECT. Since 2013, Bouldin and her collective have gained national recognition for their efforts to contribute to the evolution of contemporary dance through imaginative, socially relevant outreach, and performances.

As resident choreographer, Bouldin has created 11 original works for her company, including her most personal work to dateThe Triangle, which takes its inspiration from her own experience battling and making peace with multiple sclerosis. The work poignantly combines conceptual fashion and dance theater in a series of moving portraits that reimagine the agency of disability and otherness. NEW DIALECT recently premiered The Triangle alongside Roy Assaf’s GIRLS (US premiere) to sold out audiences at OZ Arts Nashville. They will make their Pillow debut with an excerpt of The Triangle.
