During the summer of 2017, New Dialect spent two-weeks at Perry Mansfield Performing Arts Camp in Colorado as the dance company in residence. While there, we began researching a series of studies based on Banning's experience losing her coordination and ability to walk in the Fall of 2016.
This series, called Limitation Etudes, explores how physical constraints can create opportunities to uncover new capacities of movement and thought.
Limitation Etude 5 was shot on location a Perry Mansfield.
