Project 3

Seattle Dance Project's spring show looks like one of those big family gatherings where your parents and cousins meet your girlfriend for the first time. Then the neighbors crash the party. SDP founders Tim Lynch and Julie Tobiason used to dance classical works for Kent Stowell when they were at Pacific Northwest Ballet. Now they're commissioning dances from the likes of postmodernist Mark Haim, whose work is more likely to show up at On the Boards. "Project 3" offers new dances from both choreographers, as well as from New York City Ballet alum Edwaard Liang. Beyond those three premieres, the company will dance revised versions of the rock-'n'-roll-influenced In Another Land by the UW's Betsy Cooper and James Canfield's Because. It promises to be a busy evening. (Through Feb. 6.) ACT Theatre, 700 Union St., 292-7676, $25. 8 p.m. SANDRA KURTZ [See Sandra's review.]
