This week on the Do List, I'm joined by KQED Youth Media Manager Ariana Proehl for talk about a queer circus, a Saharan film festival, a tribute to a beloved DJ and more. And also, on my first week sitting in his old chair here at the Do List, I want to say thanks to Cy Musiker — for showing us the way.
On with this week's show; click through for details.
Friday and Saturday, May 18 and 19: Paradise: Belly of the Beast from circus troupe Topsy Turvy pushes the boundaries of imagination and mythology while centering people of color and queer people of color.
Saturday, May 19: The Malcolm X Jazz Arts Festival always has a great vibe and crowd, and features a jazz stage, dance stage, poetry stage, a tribute to Pam the Funkstress and more at San Antonio Park in Oakland.
Through July 17: Yarrow Slaps’ More Water at State Gallery features the artists' works along with a back room that shows off Slaps's curatorial side, with a group show by a crew of artists he’s calling the Art Figaz.
