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 small 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 burlesque, live music, vaudeville, aerials, visual art, magic, mysticism, with newly integrated themes, performances and installations at each event. Doors open at 7:30pm. The show runs from 8pm-11pm. Guests are encouraged to stay and enjoy private readings, drinks, and food until the doors close at 12am. Themed costumes and/or vintage formalwear are encouraged but not required. This event is 21+ For details about this particular event, including themes and featured performers, please visit thepoetrybrothel.com
