The Poetry Brothel – based in Kingston has been bringing performance poetry in an evening entertainment format to Dutchess and Ulster County for 2 years now. This time around we are going to be appearing at the BSP Kingston in Kingston, in their Spiegeltent – providing a turn of the (last century) festive setting.

The Poetry Brothel is a worldwide phenomena – Costumed poet/characters in a nightlife atmosphere, replete with live music, dance, and torch singing create a fun sumptuous, evening where intelligence and thinking strut their stuff. For an extra treat you can come to us during the performance and ask for a private reading a one on one with a poet, who will do what they do on the stage – for you alone. Many say it’s the most memorable part of the Poetry Brothel.

We in the Kingston Poetry Brothel bring out own blend of poetry, music, fusion belly dance, torch singing, infused with humor, wisdom, and artistry. We believe it is an evening, not to be missed.

Poetry Brothel also donates a portion of the proceeds of each performance to a program run by Children of Tomorrow that rescues woman in Nepal (poorer countries are breeding grounds for forced prostitution) and gives them work skills and builds up self worth – in thru poetry – a potent remedy for feeling voiceless.

In this way we close the circle, using the idea of a lush 19th century brothel and it’s high life, while also doing good in the world to address what brothels have become in the 21st century
