The Events

Our poets are accompanied by a rotating cast of burlesque dancers, magicians, body painters, sketch artists, and acrobats; our in-house band, The Keystone Swingers (under the direction of Páll Ármann), have been known to play by turns with the jazz-quintet Gleðikonurnar.

On March 8, the Poetry Brothel will host a show in honor of International Women’s Day, featuring an all female cast and poet Elísabet Jökulsdóttir.

We’ve previously held shows like Wild Nights!, a Masquerade Ball, and The Seven Deadly Sins. Each evening has its own unique theme, and guests are encouraged to dress accordingly.
