The Poetry Brothel: Holiday Office Party (LA)

Welcome to a unique and immersive poetry event that takes poetry outside classrooms and lecture halls and places it in the lush interiors of a bordello.
Madam Tallula presents a rotating cast of poets, each operating within a carefully crafted character, who impart their work in public readings of poetry, and most distinctly, as purveyors of private, secret poetry readings on beds, chaise lounges and in private rooms. For a small fee, all of the poets are available at any time during the evening.
Of course, any true Bordello needs a good cover; ours is an immersive cabaret featuring burlesque, live music, vaudeville, aerials, visual art, magic, mysticism, with newly integrated themes, performances, and installations at each event.
On the open patio, the troupe presents Tarot readings, poetic souvenirs, live typewriter poetry, and occasional burlesque and musical performances.
The El Cid tapas kitchen and bar will be open for dinner and drinks throughout.
Doors open at 6pm. The show runs from 7pm-10pm. Themed costumes and/or vintage formalwear are encouraged but not required.
This event is 21+
