About 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.
