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 July 4, the Poetry Brothel will host a hellish Inferno of a show at Reykjavik Fringe Festival, with Brazilian poet Francesca Cricelli. Complete with burlesque dancers, acrobats, private portraits, and aerialists—as well as a roaring jazz band. Buy your ticket now!

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.
