KQED Youth Media Manager Ariana Proehl is back as co-host to bring some hipness to the Do List this week. The real challenge was pruning down the list! I can’t remember a late January with more enticing shows to choose from. Enjoy.

Jan 26–31: Ladysmith Black Mambazo high-kicks its way back to the Bay Area.

Jan. 4–March 3: The Fraenkel Gallery hangs a show of artful record album covers — and it’s free.

Jan. 26 and Feb. 3 and 4: Circa melds daring circus, opera, and dance to tell a story about a refugee’s search for home.

Feb. 2–3: The next episode of a dance and theater series about sex trafficking and displacement in Oakland.

Jan. 25–Feb 18 and  March 7–April 1: A skeleton crew tries to save their hopes for a future as Detroit’s last auto plant faces a shutdown.

Feb. 2–3: Stew invokes the ideas and memory of writer James Baldwin in a musical tribute.
