The Poetry Brothel: La Rive Gauche

Burlesque and poetry share a bed

Interactive poetry locks lips with vaudeville in a fin de siècle brothel. Why? We can't answer that, but what we can tell you is it works beautifully. Pseudonymous poets prostitute themselves by giving one-on-one readings for money – an experience that proves to be as intimate as it sounds. Live music and fortune tellers complete this unorthodox night of mischief. Over 21s only. Dress code: evening wear encouraged, no fur.
