Pop-Up Magazine: The Escape Issue
MAD | VIFF Live
September 28, 6:30pm | Vogue Theatre
The acclaimed touring "live magazine" show, Pop-Up Magazine, is coming to VIFF - and Vancouver - for the first time! Prepare for a night of vivid, never-before-told multimedia stories accompanied by illustration, animation, photography, and an original score performed onstage by the Magik*Magik Orchestra.
This fall, Pop-Up Magazine is heading on its first themed tour — The Escape Issue — produced in collaboration with their sister publication, The California Sunday Magazine. We could all use a little escape. From politics. From the past. From hostile countries and climate change. From the Internet. From negativity. Maybe even from ourselves. Join Pop-Up Magazine for an immersive night of storytelling devoted to escapes big and small, daring and mundane, physical and mental.
Contributors to Pop-Up Magazine’s Escape Issue include comedian Jordan Carlos (HBO’s Divorce; Black Mirror; WNYC’s Adulting); poet Sarah Kay (Project VOICE); writers Albert Samaha (BuzzFeed News), Mary Melton (LA Magazine), Chris Duffy (Wyatt Cenac’s Problem Areas), Clio Chang (Jezebel, The New Republic); musician Left at London; photographer Lucas Foglia (International Center of Photography, SF MOMA).

End the night gathered around the bar, performers and audience together. And nothing goes online after—you have to be there to see it.
