The Poetry Brothel
"The Poetry Brothel" 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 brothel needs a good cover; "The Poetry Brothel" is an interactive cabaret, offering live music, burlesque, aerials, vaudeville, live drawing, and fortune-tellers, with newly integrated themes, performances and installations at each event.
Doors open at 6pm with a happy hour from 6-7pm. The show runs from 7pm-9pm with private readings continuing until 10pm, at least. Themed costumes and/or vintage formalwear are encouraged but not required.
Attendees must be 21+.
