The Poetry Brothel London – Sapphira debuts ‘Soliloquy’

The Poetry Brothel is a unique and immersive poetry event that takes poetry outside lecture halls and places it in the lush interiors of a bordello.

Sunday 22nd Feb, 8pm (The Hackney Empire, London) Click here for more.

Based in concept on the fin-de-siecle bordellos in New Orleans and Paris, many of which functioned as safe havens for fledgling, avant-garde artists, The Poetry Brothel presents a rotating cast of poets as “whores,” each operating within a carefully constructed character, who impart their work in public readings, spontaneous eruptions of poetry, and most distinctly, as purveyors of private, one-on-one poetry readings in back rooms and other secret and intimate spaces, propitious surroundings for the advent of psychic connections and true poetical/existential experiences. The idea is to purchase a piece of the “whore’s” poetical spirit and absorb yourself in the true nature of readings and literary performances.

For a small fee, all of the “poetry whores” are available for these sequestered readings at any time during the event. Of course, any true brothel needs 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.

Sapphira will debut poems and artworks created with Australia’s most famous living painter, Charles Billich as part of their forthcoming book ‘Soliloquy’.
