Escape the mundane with Poetry Brothel London -THE GREAT BEAUTY-

This edition of the Poetry Brothel London investigates beauty in its most transcendental form, with its innate dangers and the derangements of excess and vanity. 
Touching upon Paolo Sorrentino’s masterpiece, “La Grande Belleza,” our poets will summon the modern Italian muses to explore and exorcise their own vision of aesthetical bliss through the poetical vision. 

Expect inspiration and intimacy, passion, failure, expect profanity, sacrilege and magical cosmic wisdom, expect madness and endless desire. Expect to delve into the stormy of oceans of decadence and beauty.
Expect to escape the mundane with The Poetry Brothel London.

We have found the perfect venue for this event in the heart of Convent Garden, a secretive and splendorous Members Club which is known for its high culture and its high life but which hides the heart of darkness and excess. 
Live Swing and Jazz
Poetry Performances by some of the most passionate and inspired poets in the London underground scene. Tarot readings

Imagine beauty encapsulated in the literary expression of a powerful psyche. Imagine purchasing a portion of a poet's mental anatomy. Imagine being locked in a perfumed room with a spirit and a flesh of your own choosing, jaunting through the alleyways and corridors of an artist's consciousness. Imagine sexiness and poems dancing together like flames with the wind.

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.
