US Premiere. Set against a sumptuous Barcelona backdrop and inspired by the real-life Poetry Brothel, based in New York, weaves together several erotic vignettes, each introduced by a “poetry courtesan” at a bohemian gathering where readings, dance and music create a sensual vibe.
Among the stories…a young woman grows tired of sexual labels and throws off having to choose. A poet recounts the unconventional escapades of his mysterious mother. At the brink of thirty, a woman looks at how her life has converged from the fantasies of her youth. The participants of a heated, short-lived tryst nervously anticipate their reunion an entire year later.
