The Poetry BrothelOffering more than just poetry, the Poetry Brothel is a unique and immersive event that takes poetry outside of classrooms and lecture halls and places it in the lush interiors of three-storey bordello alongside cabaret, live music, burlesque, fortune tellers and booze. Inspired by the bordellos of New York and Paris, many of which provided safe havens for fledgeling, avant-garde artists, The Poetry Brothel's "Madame" presents a cast of poetry "whores", each of which offer public readings, spontaneous eruptions of poetry and one-on-one poetry readings in back rooms.
