Time Out says
Pop-Up Magazine brings together the best kinds of creatives—writers, artists, photographers, filmmakers, puppeteers, the list goes on—and puts them onstage to share and discuss their work. All pieces performed at the show are new and unpublished, either created for the event or as part of a larger ongoing project. This means getting a first look at work from some of the biggest names in fiction, photography, film and more—according to former senior editor Pat Walters, “work everyone else will start hearing about a year from now.” Also, nothing is recorded, so everything shared is a one-time only creative experience.
But things are a little different right now, so for its spring issue, Pop-Up Magazine is headed online for the first time. On May 27, hit up YouTube for never-before-told stories about medical students, greeting card companies and competitive mariachi bands from comedians Alyssa Limperis and Mohanad Elshieky; Insta-famous dancer Donté Colley; documentarian Alejandra Vasquez; plant therapist Darryl Cheng; choreographers Jawole Willa Jo Zollar and Liz Lerman; humorist Mia Mercado; storyteller and doctor Emily Silverman; and powwow dancer Rose Bear Don’t Walk. And just like the in-person show, you’ll be able to hang out with the storytellers afterwards (via Google Meet).
