NAOMI, is a work for five women set in BRAZIL, an intimate studio space that was founded and run by Sperber since 2005. Musician Nate Wooley, lighting designer Joe Levasseur and costume designer Gabriel Rivera collaborate with Sperber in this work that utilizes the unique architecture, textures, and sonic properties of BRAZIL. It plays with the intimacy and tensions that emerge from the closeness and proximity between viewer and performer.
NAOMI was sponsored, in part, by the Greater New York Arts Development Fund of the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs, administered by Brooklyn Arts Council (BAC).
