There’s still time to nominate local icons for Best of D.C.
Looking for a way to experience gentrification that’s more interesting than watching the cracks grow in the walls of your shoddily constructed condo? Jane Jerardi and Ginger Wagg are prepared to assault your senses with Façade, a multidisciplinary event that riffs on the changing cityscape of D.C. “Part performance, part construction site, and part sensory tour,” according to its press, Façade blends the movement of Jerardi and Wagg with the visuals of Michael Wichita and original sounds by local band the Caution Curves to reconstruct and repurpose the top floor of the Warehouse building. Audiences will be led through the space at intervals, encountering listening stations, TV screens, through-peephole images, and—if the press photos are any indication—two women striking odd poses against some concrete slabs. What this has to do with the new Ruby Tuesday’s on 14th Street is anyone’s guess. The performance begins at 7:30, 8:15, 9, and 9:45 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 30, and Sunday, Oct. 1, at the Warehouse Theatre, 1017-21 7th St. NW. $15. (202) 783-3933. (Anne Marson)
