Use open to parse the Dhall expression into structured data that Nushell can pipe:

> open example.dhall
───┬─────────────┬─────┬───────┬──────────────
 # │ accountType │ age │ name  │   nickname
───┼─────────────┼─────┼───────┼──────────────
 0 │ [row Admin] │  24 │ Alice │ Cool Alice
 1 │ [row User]  │  49 │ Bob   │
 2 │ [row Guest] │  20 │ Carlo │ Cooler Carlo
───┴─────────────┴─────┴───────┴──────────────

> open example.dhall | where age > 20 | get name
───┬───────
 0 │ Alice
 1 │ Bob
───┴───────
