The Poetry Brothel's Office Holiday Party!
The Poetry Brothel
About Office Holiday Party!
Welcome to a unique and interactive 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 impart 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 small fee, all of the poets are available for these sequestered readings at any time during the event. Of course, any true bordello needs a good cover; ours is an literary cabaret featuring burlesque, live music, vaudeville, aerials, visual art, magic, mysticism, with newly integrated themes, performances and installations at each event.
Doors open at 7pm with a happy hour and live jazz from 7-8pm. The show begins at 8pm with public performances from 8pm-11pm. An after party, complete with private poetry readings, tarot readings, and other intimate, mystical experiences will run from 11pm until late, with doors opening to the public and potential after-party attendees at 11pm.
Attendees must be 21+.
