Where did our metaphysical necessities dive into? What did we do with our dead religious inclinations? Where did we store our spiritual desires? Come to The Poetry Brothel London and witness the transformation of God into Love, poetry and other offshoots of the night.

This fabulous Poetry Brothel event will be based on a novel by the Colombian emperor of narrations, Gabriel Garcia Marquez, “Of Love and other Demons” which revolves around the love affair between an exorcising priest and a young woman accused of witchcraft.

We are curating a night of romantic incantations, trauma, delusion, longing, dichotomies, transmuted spirituality, taboo, frustrated and satisfied desire, plenitude, music, illusion and of course our star player: poetry.

Come abandon yourself to LOVE, POETRY, MUSIC, and other demons of the night.

Tarot readings, burlesque and live music.

The Poetry Brothel is a unique and immersive poetry event that takes poetry away from classrooms, lecture halls and Ivory towers and places it in the lush, radiant and fiery interiors of a bordello. Based on the concept of 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 "poetry whores" each operating within a carefully constructed character. For a small fee, you can purchase a piece of the "whore's" poetical spirit and absorb yourself in the true nature of one-on-one poetry readings in back rooms and other secret and intimate spaces.
