POP-UP Magazine: Tuesday, October 27, 2015 at 7:30PM at one of our favorite venues- The Athenaeum.

Pop-Up Magazine is a “live magazine,” an evening of true stories, photography, documentary film, and radio, presented live on stage by some of the country’s top storytellers and artists. Stories are accompanied by visuals, recorded audio, and live music. All brand new, nothing published or aired before. Past shows have included best-selling authors like Susan Orlean, Michael Pollan, and Alice Walker; Oscar-winning filmmakers; public radio personalities from shows like This American Life and Radiolab; famed photographers like Larry Sultan, Richard Misrach, and Autumn de Wilde; and artists and actors from Beck to John C. Reilly.

Our theme is no theme. Science, music, politics, art, business, food, literature, design, and nature — all in one show. We don’t record it, so you have to be there to see it.

CCCF is a proud member of FACE: Fresh Arts Coalition Europe- an innovative organization with a cross section approach to arts collaboration.

"Fresh Arts Coalition Europe (FACE) is an international network of arts organisations that supports contemporary cross-disciplinary art forms and facilitates international collaboration. It covers fresh and ground-breaking practices such as live art, immersive or participatory projects, site-specific arts, contemporary circus, and physical and visual theatre."

"Forget every negative stereotype you ever learned about mime and reimagine it as an intelligent, hilarious and fiercely imaginative genre that can utterly transport you and make you laugh until you pee your pants."

If you're in San Fran this weekend check out CCCF 2015 guest artists Slater Penney and Jaron Aviv Hollander in The Submarine Show . . .
