And Now For Further Enticement, In The Words Of Madam M:

“Join us on June 5th for steamy readings, cold drinks and lovely ladies performing burlesque for your titillation. In the old fashioned style of everyone’s favorite Dolly Parton flick, dress to the nines and get ready to be sauced and saucy.

All of the resident ‘whores’ are available for these sequestered readings at any time during the event. Of course, any good brothel need a furtive ‘front’ or cover; ours is part saloon and part salon, offering a full bar with music, burlesque dancing, fortune-tellers, and installations from our poets and other artists at each event. [In addition to the featured readers], each night we will also introduce several “New Girls”…[performers] who punctuate the evening with a few special public performances.”

Music provided by the ever spectacular Daniel Ribiat.

Featured visual artists: Joshua Burian Mohr and Zoetica Ebb

“The cornerstone of The Poetry Brothel is the event series. Bringing a new twist to the tradition of poetry reading, The Poetry Brothel showcases a diverse roster of emerging and established poets.

However, our events are also interactive performance art pieces based on the concept of the prewar brothels in the United States and Europe.”
