The Poetry Brothel

The Poetry Brothel is a striking concept event launched in New York City in the early 2000's, where performers are poets parading as prostitutes who accept and redeem poker chips for money, offering in exchange a private poetry reading in an intimate back room of an atypical venue.

In Novemeber the concept was exported to Paris via co-spoken word in Paris host Alberto Riggetini.

Miss Peacock was part of the initial Paris team.
