Anna Sperber
Artist in Residence (2013-2014)

Anna Sperber is a Brooklyn-based choreographer and performer. Her work has been described by The New York Times as “immediately compelling” and “wonderfully strange” with “moments of theatrical magic.” Her performances are rooted in the poetic potency of choreography and its potential for perceptual transformation, embodying a tension between formality and chaotic wildness. Sperber’s work has been presented and commissioned by The Kitchen, The Joyce Theater’s UNLEASHED Series at New York Live Arts, Gibney Dance, The Chocolate Factory, Baryshnikov Arts Center, and Dance Theater Workshop in New York City, as well as by the American Dance Festival in Durham, NC. Sperber was a co-founder of classclassclass, designed to nurture new dance teachers while offering reduced class rates, and was a co-curator of the 2008 Movement Research Spring Festival. She has taught as a guest artist at American Dance Festival, Movement Research, Gibney Dance, Hunter College, George Washington University, and Wayne State University. Sperber founded and ran BRAZIL, a studio and intimate performance space in Bushwick, Brooklyn from 2004 to 2014 and Sunset Space from 2019-2020.
