Poetry Brothel: Masquerade

An interactive literary cabaret series that fuses poetry, burlesque, live music, aerials, vaudeville, visual art, magic, mysticism, and private, one-on-one poetry experiences.

This year’s masquerade will be a whirling disco ball of costumed time travel with masked mavens of every epoch. Whether your midnight reverie is the golden visage of Versailles twilight OR the Medico della Peste staring back at you from the obsidian surface of a Venetian canal, it matters not. Perhaps you fancy fangs and fore-claws to capes and cowls, or maybe it is some vision of a distant future fantasy that throbs your chambered heart. All beguiling disguises are welcome at this year’s Masquerade!
