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), plays by turns with the jazz-quintet Gleðikonurnar.

On November 22, the Poetry Brothel will host its annual Masquerade Ball, featuring a mystery in which the audience plays a part. 

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.
