Poetry Brothel. It's happening again.


The second edition of the Poetry Brothel Berlin is nigh! We invite you to an evening of mystery, poetry, nightmares and seduction. Follow us down the rabbit hole to a surreal world pulsing with David Lynch's darkly surreal imagination. LET'S ROCK.

Spend some quality time with our international poets and performers in a tantalizing location, excellent some damn fine drinks and, as ever, expand your mind by having twisted words whispered right into your ear.

This edition, and it's only our second one, will feature some VERY high class acts and performers. More information about this will be released. Or maybe not, depending on our mood. Maybe we just don't want to spoil too much of the mystery. Check our Facebook page. Or not. It's your choice.

The ticket is your gateway to the venue, the party, live music and performances. It does not, however, include private readings from the Poetry Brothel's poetry whores although your Madame offers you a free reading by one of the Poets. If you wish to get to know them more intimately,show them you adore them. CASH ONLY.

There will be a limited number of special VIP options that will guarantee an even more exclusive experience.


About the Poetry Brothel:

The Poetry Brothel, the brainchild of Stephanie Berger, 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. It is a concept based in concept on the fin-de-siècle bordellos in New Orleans and Paris, many of which functioned as safe havens for fledgling, avant-garde artists, The Poetry Brothel's "Madame" or "Monsieur" presents a rotating cast of poets as "whores," each operating within a carefully constructed character, who impart their work in public readings, spontaneous eruptions of poetry, and most distinctly, as purveyors of private, one-on-one poetry readings in back 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, live music, burlesque dancers, painters, and fortune-tellers, with newly integrated themes, performances and installations at each event.

And for those who read this till the end... shhh and keep this to a whisper: we are super happy and proud to announce you that Stephanie Berger will be one of our Madames of honour!
