The Poetry Brothel Masquerade Tour: Seattle

The Poetry Brothel is a unique and immersive poetry event that takes poetry outside classrooms and lecture halls and places it in the lush interiors of a bordello. The Poetry Brothel presents a rotating cast of both male and female poets as “whores,” each operating within a carefully crafted character, who impart their work in public readings, spontaneous eruptions of poetry, and most distinctly, as purveyors of private poetry readings on beds, chaise lounges and in private rooms. For a small fee, all of the “poetry whores” are available for these sequestered readings at any time during the event. Of course, any true brothel needs a good cover; The Poetry Brothel’s is an immersive cabaret, offering a full bar, musicians, burlesque dancers, painters, actors, and fortune-tellers, with newly integrated themes, performances and installations at each event.

According to the great Oscar Wilde, "Man is least himself when he talks in his own person. Give him a mask, and he will tell you the truth." That couldn't be more true at The Poetry Brothel on our Masquerade Tour, where we promise to bring you more truth, beauty, hilarity, and intimacy than ever before. We're bringing back one of our favorites, esteemed guest poet Jerome Rothenberg, along with burlesque artists Eva Mae Garnet & Lilly Holiday, house band Gypsy Groove, palm reader and jewelry maker Holy Crow, a slew of poetry whores, and, of course, your hosts, The Madame, Mister Charley, and Tennessee Pink. This will surely be a celebration for the ages--bigger, better, truer, and weirder than ever! 

This event will take place in the Mississippi Ballroom. Doors open at 8pm; show starts at 8:30pm. Themed costumes and/or evening wear are encouraged but not required. This event is 21+.

The Love Witch (2016) in 35mm

Shows at 2PM and 7PM!

From filmmaker Anna Biller: Elaine (Samantha Robinson), a beautiful young witch, is determined to find a man to love her. In her gothic Victorian apartment she makes spells and potions, then picks up men and seduces them. However, her spells work too well, and she ends up with a string of hapless victims. When she at last meets the man of her dreams, her desperation to be loved drives her to the brink of insanity and murder. 

The Love Witch received positive reviews from critics, earning a Rotten Tomatoes approval rating of 97%, its consensus reads: "The Love Witch offers an absorbing visual homage to a bygone era, arranged subtly in service of a thought-provoking meditation on the battle of the sexes."

"Ms. Biller's movie, like its heroine, presents a fascinating, perfectly composed, brightly colored surface. What's underneath is marvelously dark, like love itself." The New York Times / A. O. Scott

The Love Witch is listed as #30 on Rotten Tomatoes' list of the Top 100 Horror Movies It also made Rolling Stone's list of the top 10 Horror Movies of 2016, The New Yorker's list of the Best Movies of 2016, and Indiewire's list of The Best Movies of 2016.

New York Poetry Festival

  • Governors Island New York, NY (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

The New York City Poetry Festival, the largest gathering of its kind, returns to Governors Island this summer -- and with exciting news. After six years wrapped in the breezy embrace of Colonel's Row, The New York City Poetry Festival is migrating east across the island to picturesque Nolan Park. The move is designed to give our growing festival a little breathing room and some new possibilities. Nolan Park is more than twice the size of Colonel's Row, ringed with a collection of beautiful Victorian houses, and tucked beneath the wide, green canopies of dozens of century old trees. This summer we will transform our festival into a poetry village! In addition to our three main stages, along with the The Ring of Daisies Open Mic and The Children's Poetry Festival, Governor's Island has invited us to occupy and program the trellised porches that circle the park. With all this new space to explore, we are working harder than ever to bring more poetry and poetry lovers to the island. With that in mind and with the help of our newest festival partner, The Strand Bookstore, we are redoubling our outreach in order to make this the biggest and most culturally significant festival we have ever produced. 

The goal of The New York City Poetry Festival is to be the most egalitarian and inclusive poetry gathering in the world. Since it's inception the festival has remained free and open to the public. Any group or organization involved in the creation or appreciation of poetry is invited to curate a thirty minute reading on one of the festival's three main stages, and all completed applications are accepted on a first come first served basis until the festival roster is full. We also offer tables to any organization or vendor who wishes to participate in our Vendors' Village / Book Fair at a rate of $50 for the weekend. You can also sponsor the event, vounteer for us, or, if you are a visual, multimedia, or performance artist, you may apply to install your artwork. We also welcome other ideas: workshops, lectures, seminars, discussions, activites. This festival belongs to you, the people of New York City, so please feel free to find a way to get invovled!

We are so excited to see you out on the island!

stART on the Street takes place on Park Avenue from Highland Street to Pleasant Street in the heart of Worcester, MA. Keep in mind if you use directions obtained from an online mapping service, some neighborhood streets will be re-routed during the festival (use Park Ave & Highland St. for a destination). The festival is large and there are not many places to sit down so plan accordingly - comfortable shoes and pack some sunblock! {Rain date - September 25th}
