About The Poetry Brothel: Love Circus

Welcome to a unique and immersive poetry event that takes poetry outside classrooms and lecture halls and places it in the lush interiors of a bordello. The Madame presents a rotating cast of poets, each operating within a carefully crafted character, who share their work in public readings, spontaneous eruptions of poetry, and most distinctly, as purveyors of private poetry readings on beds, chaise lounges and in private rooms. For a fee, all of the poets are available for these sequestered readings at any time during the event. Of course, any true bordello need a good cover; ours is an immersive cabaret featuring poetry, burlesque, live music, vaudeville, aerials, visual art, magic, and mysticism, with newly integrated themes, performances and installations at each event. Masks, costumes, and extravagant dress are encouraged but not required.

Join for a night of soul-bending acrobatics, mind-blowing contortions, and heart-expanding lyricism as our poetry whores become the true ringleaders of your flaming hearts this Valentine’s Day. Let the lion inside you out of its cage. Leap through the burning, roar, and soar through the air with your gorgeous mane on fire.
