New Dialect & American Opera Company - Broken Theater
New Dialect & American Opera Company – Broken Theater
Celebrated Nashville dance collective New Dialect joins forces with the acclaimed American Modern Opera Company (AMOC) for the must-see collaboration of the season. Featuring evocative choreography by former Batsheva member Bobbi Jene Smith, the compelling new dance and music work assembles some of the most notable talents of the rising generation — including acclaimed dancer-choreographer and New Dialect founder Banning Bouldin in her triumphant return to the stage.
Described as “rapt and raw” by the Los Angeles Times, Broken Theater imagines a group of artists wrestling with identity and purpose after their audience disappears. Lines between selfhood and the parts we play blur as the virtuosic cast of performers slip in and out of their expected roles: “dancers sing, singers dance, and instrumentalists do both” (The New Yorker).
Founded by composer Matthew Aucoin and stage director Zack Winokur, AMOC is a youthful collective of seventeen singers, instrumentalists, and dancers who focus specifically on collaborative and interdisciplinary work. New Dialect is a contemporary dance practice based in Nashville and founded by Banning Bouldin out of a desire to foster a sustainable ecosystem for contemporary dance artists to live, learn, and collaborate in her hometown.
