The Poetry Brothel


Rendezvous (map) Belltown

This event will create a turn-of-the-century bordello-style atmosphere in which audience members can enjoy a series of public readings (as well as performances ranging from music to burlesque dance to fortune telling). The major twist: you can also pay self-proclaimed "poetry whores" to read to you privately. The sex work analogy and the use of the word "whore" won't sit well with everyone, but they're trying to make a point about intimacy and personal connection in art. Alexandra Villarreal of Observer wrote "rather than meeting its demise like many a whorehouse in the past, the Poetry Brothel has become a think tank for art, growth, discovery, and wonder. It gives the mind a refuge, a place to reflect and create. But most of all, it throws one hell of a bash."
