What is Pop Magic?
Pop Magic engages audiences through the production of original live performance and develops artists of different backgrounds and disciplines to create a diverse community of collaborators. Pop Magic is committed to intersectionality in the teams we assemble, the communities we create, and the stories we put on stage.
Pop Magic is on a mission to expand the definition of the performing arts in the context of contemporary nightlife. We bring talent together to create music, theatre, dance, interactive parties, feasts, social media, video, and projects that don’t fit in any one category. We partner with other organizations to bring live performance experiences into non-traditional contexts, reaching new audiences who would generally pick the bar over the ballet.
In addition to our work as a production company and development house, we have a private club with several levels of Membership. Popmagic.org/join/
