Don’t like high art because you have to crane your neck to see it? “floor plan,” a live art event and dance performance, plops it down right in the middle of a living room for you. Four area artists will shuffle audiences around a converted apartment, beckoning them to touch, feel, and taste their way through its rooms: Sharon Mansur will squeeze a series of solos from such household objects as a lemon, a rope, and a scarf; Ginger Wagg will writhe in a vat of beans; and Jane Jerardi will waft through plastic sheeting and wallow in a carpet of orange Superballs. Finally, Naoko Maeshiba’s duet with Tatsuya Aoyagi promises to be a butoh-inflected treat involving rice paper, thread, and flashlights shining through water-filled plastic bags. Witness the domestication of the recalcitrant pleasures of conceptual dance at 7 and 9 p.m. (see City List for other dates) at the Warehouse Theater’s Gallery, 1021 7th St. NW. $12. (202) 783-3933.
