Pop-Up Zine is a hyper-local production of Pop-Up Magazine, the celebrated, nationally touring “live magazine.” This one-night-only show, Pop-Up Zine Dallas, will feature multimedia stories that span art, science, culture, music, and current events written and performed by Dallas-based writers, artists, performers, and filmmakers. The night will unfold like a classic general-interest magazine with contributors reading long-form, true stories on stage accompanied by illustrations, animations, and video plus live music. At the end, the cast and the audience will mingle at the Texas Theatre bar. Contributors to Pop-Up Zine Dallas include author Sarah Hepola; journalist Michael Mooney; journalist and author Brantley Hargrove; filmmaker Roger Peters; photographer Richard Andrew Sharum; arts program manager and artist Constance Y. White; artist Francesca Brunetti; artist and designer Jason Heatherly, writer Stanley Ukeni with photographer Kael Alford; and music director Zach Galindo.
Pop-Up Zine Dallas will feature stories ranging from heists to storm chasing, catfishing to the Texas immigrant experience, avant-garde theatre to hidden, underappreciated parts of Dallas. Pop-Up Magazine began in San Francisco in 2009 as a casual experiment by a small group of friends. The founders were curious to see what would happen if you brought writers, photographers, filmmakers, artists and radio producers together for a night of true storytelling. It was fun, it worked, and it grew. In 2020, more than forty thousand people will see Pop-Up Magazine at major venues in large cities across the country.
Pop-Up Zine was born from that foundational spirit by the founders of Pop-Up Magazine. Taking the DNA from the live touring show, Pop-Up Zine is an opportunity to partner with independent producers across the country to create local, intimate versions of the live touring show. The content, contributors, and locations of each Pop-Up Zine are unique and independently curated by local Pop-Up Zine producers.
