Details

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.

On November 12th, The Poetry Brothel will delve deep into the deliciously rich practice of Tarot. Your Major Arcana for the evening will include esteemed guest reader Matthew Yeager, house band the Hot Club of Flatbush, burlesque dancers Cassandra Rosebeetle & Puss N Boots, aerialists, Mademoiselle Estelle & The Lost Boys, our sketch sketch artist Too Loose, palm reader & jewelry maker Holy Crow, a slew of poets, and, as always, your hosts Mister Charley, The Madame, and Tennesee Pink.

Doors open at 8pm; show starts at 9pm. Themed costumes and/or formalwear are encouraged but not required. This event is 21+.
