The Poetry Brothel

Le Bordel de la Poésie… pay a poet for a private reading in these beautiful events. With English and French poets.

The Poetry Brothel is a unique poetry event that takes poetry outside classrooms and lecture halls and places it in the lush interiors of a bordello. The clients in the audience can approach the “poetry whores” and for a small fee have a private reading in an intimate space. Of course, any true brothel need a good cover; The Poetry Brothel is an immersive cabaret, offering a full bar, live jazz, burlesque dancers, painters and fortune-tellers, with newly integrated themes, performances and installations at each event.
