Jazz-based Inaside presents a spring program packed with pieces by new choreographers on the scene as well as a few from established dance makers. Richard A. Smith, Inaside’s artistic director, premieres a new trio based on notions of justice and objective truth. Pieces by emerging artists include a full-company piece by Sinead Gildea about the mercurial nature of time and our perceptions of its passing entitled “caspule” and a personal piece about the strength imparted by friends and family in times of crisis by company member Courtney Kozlowski. The company revives “The Alarm Will Sound, ” choreographed and scored by Eddy Ocampo; the swinging, social dance-inspired “Mink, Jazz and Swing: Dancing to the music of Miss Peggy Lee” by Harrison McEldowney and Tony Savino and two pieces by Smith. This is a one-night-only chance to see an under-the-radar company. (Sharon Hoyer)
