Description

Summer doesn't have to end Darlings!

Come celebrate The Summer of Love with your favorite poets because the revolution didn't end in 1967- we brought it home with us.

Dust off the sand, wash off the chlorine and join us for a magical night of poetry dressed in bohemian fashions that will leave you hallucinating and tingling all over.

About The Brothel:

"13 Best Things to Do in LA: Prepare to have your expectations exceeded by The Poetry Brothel." - LA Weekly

Madam Tallula presents a rotating cast of poets who impart their work as purveyors of private poetry readings in secret, hidden, well-appointed chambers. You may avail yourself of your choice of poet for tokens at any time during the event.

On the patio, the troupe presents Tarot readings, poetic souvenirs, live typewriter poetry, and occasional burlesque and musical performances.

On the stage, a three-hour roster of Vaudeville variety entertainment and words, words, words.

The El Cid tapas kitchen and bar will be open for dinner and drinks throughout.

In addition to its poets, The Poetry Brothel presents artists and activists working in a variety of mediums both on stage and through its ever-changing array of intimate, interactive, and creative services. Artists performing with the Brothel are male, female, faeries, sea creatures, witches, aliens, POC, straight, queer, emerging, established, local, international, virgins, whores, and everything in between.

The Poetry Brothel recognizes that not everyone can take the mask of being a “whore” off at the end of the night and therefore uses its platform to support sex workers and to teach the public that sex work is real work. Sex work and poetry are two of the oldest professions - both feed the human need for intimacy, fantasy, and desire. By entwining these elements into a seamless, immersive experience, The Poetry Brothel promotes empowered sexuality practices and progressive artistic expression by exhibiting radical inclusion, consensual intimacy, conscious communication, and the inherent value of beauty in all its forms.

On Consent:

Behave with beauty, connect with intention. We are, by and large, a no-contact event -- here to blow your mind and nothing else! Always ask before touching anyone in our House, and report any discomfort to security or staff or the Madam Herself without delay.
