Poetry Brothel
Poetry Brothel
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 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 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, mysticism, with newly integrated themes, performances and installations at each event.

Doors open at 9:00pm, and the show begins promptly at 9:30 pm. Seating is first come, first serve, so we encourage you to arrive early (and stay late). The evening will wrap up right around 1am.

Themes & featured performers will be announced soon! As usual the festivities will be presided over by your hosts Mister Charley, The Madame, and that rapscallion, Tennessee Pink.

Themed costumes and/or vintage formalwear are encouraged but not required.
