KCRW is proud to present Pop-Up Magazine, the acclaimed live magazine's first-ever online show — the Spring Issue: At Home on Wednesday, May 27 at 6:00 p.m. PST. The show brings never-before-told stories to life with intimate, funny, moving performances; stunning video, art, and animation; and an original score.
The Spring Issue stories are timely and surprising — a medical student graduates early, and becomes a doctor in the midst of the pandemic; a high school varsity mariachi band competes against 80 other teams to defend their elite title in South Texas; office comedy unfolds inside a giant corporate greeting-card company; legends of the stage and Instagram alike interpret social distancing in one minute of dance; and more.
Enjoy stories from comedians Alyssa Limperis (Crazy; In Bed, Conan) and Mohanad Elshieky (Comedy Central, Full Frontal with Samantha Bee), Instagram sensation and dancer Donté Colley, documentary filmmaker Alejandra Vasquez (Night Shift), author and plant therapist Darryl Cheng (@HousePlantJournal), choreographers Jawole Willa Jo Zollar (Urban Bush Women) and Liz Lerman (Liz Lerman Dance Exchange), humor writer Mia Mercado (New Yorker, McSweeney’s), storyteller and M.D. Emily Silverman (The Nocturnists), and powwow dancer Rose Bear Don’t Walk.
