Anna Sperber, a mover and shaker in the burgeoning Brooklyn scene and a maker of powerful, sensual dances, has been a 2014 artist-in-residence at BAX, where her Every Room Is Open closes out the spring season. The new female quartet, performed by Hadar Ahuvia, Natalie Green, Alice MacDonald, and choreographer Sperber, explores the work of bodies in time, letting us see up close enduring patterns of strength and aggression: the sheer beauty of the laboring figure, without drama or ornamentation.
