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. Do you hear the trumpets calling? Do you feel your multitudes of blues spreading across your soul, as parades often do? Join us then on Thursday, November 15th, as we celebrate The Big Easy at our little bordello. The event will include burlesque by Venatrix, Minx Arcana and Cassandra Rosebeetle, music by our house band Joanna Sternberg & The Big Easy Band, palm readings and jewelry by Holy Crow, tarot readings by Rebecca Fey, reiki by The Erotic Esoteric, body painting by Liz Belomlinsky, magic by Daniel Taylor, and sketchy sketches by Too Loose. As usual the festivities will be presided over by your hosts Mister Charley, The Madame, and that rapscallion, Tennessee Pink. 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. This event is 21+ For more information, please visit thepoetrybrothel.com
