7. Poetry Brothel: Halloween Party
Experience a unique and immersive poetry event that takes poetry outside classrooms and lecture halls and places it in the lush interiors of a bordello at the Poetry Brothel: Halloween Party at the Back Room, one of New York City’s best hidden bars. Watch a rotating cast of poets, each operating within a carefully crafted character, as they perform public and private poetry readings on beds, chaise lounges and in private rooms. Of course, any true bordello needs a good cover; this evening’s is an immersive cabaret featuring burlesque, live music, vaudeville, aerials, visual art, magic, and mysticism.
