The company comes to the stage this month with a program of short pieces titled In the Light. One of the new entries, a yet-untitled ballet by Artistic Director Alan Obuzor, uses dramatic lighting effects to augment the dance. See In the Light at the New Hazlett Theater, 6 Allegheny Square East, North Side. (M.V.)
