1. "Hedwig and the Angry Inch" at Zach Theatre
Opens Jan. 23. 7:30 p.m. Wednesday-Saturday, 2:30 p.m. Sunday through March 3. $55-$165. 202 S. Lamar Blvd. 512-476-0541, zachtheatre.org.
The winner of four Tony Awards, "Hedwig" tells the story of the “internationally ignored song stylist” Hedwig Schmidt, a fourth-wall-smashing East German rock ‘n’ roll goddess who also happens to be the victim of a botched sex-change operation. She just wants to find a place to belong in America. Both outrageous and hilarious, Hedwig — one of the most groundbreaking characters ever to take the stage — will share her story while backed by her rock band the Angry Inch.
2. "Paper Dance" Performance: Motherhood
1 and 7 p.m. Jan. 23. $5-$10. Contemporary Austin, Jones Center, 700 Congress Ave. thecontemporaryaustin.org.
The Contemporary Austin's latest exhibit is a combination of both visual art and dance. Head to the Jones Center to enjoy one of 15 one-of-a-kind dance performances within an installation of Janine Antoni's works related to various themes, such as motherhood. The dances will be performed by the artist and developed collaboratively with pioneering dancer and choreographer Anna Halprin. "Paper Dance" runs through March 17 in several parts.

Every Wednesday, the urban winery pairs two of Austin's favorite things — wine and yoga — and adds a little balance to your life in the process. Head to Infinite Monkey Theorem's eclectic tasting room for an energizing yet relaxing, beginner-friendly session of vinyasa yoga. The $12 admission fee gets you access to the class and a glass of wine, and a portion of the cost goes toward the Austin Wildlife Rescue. Bring your own mat.
4. KUTX Live Jazz Series at Juliet Italian Kitchen

Juliet’s weekly jazz series gets a funk infusion with Time Out, a soul-jazz trio. The three musicians (Charles Couch, Leon Roberts and Andy Beaudoin) conjure up a vintage sound reminiscent of the legendary Jimmy Smith bands and Grant Green groups. Listen to the group play on the charming Juliet patio while enjoying Italian food and wintry drinks. Future performances include the Jeff Lofton Trio.
