Ryan and the Red Room Return for the Forest Fringe

July 12, 2016

I’ll be giving one-to-one poetry readings in Red, Like Our Room Used to Feel at this year’s Forest Fringe. A new show starts every 20 minutes, eighteen shows every day, from Tuesday 16 – Saturday 20 August. Hope to see you there.

Red, Like Our Room Used To Feel
Tue 16 – Sat 20 August, 12noon-3pm; 4pm-7pm, every 20 minutes.

An intimate one-to-one poetry performance from Ryan Van Winkle. An audio voyage featuring ambient melodies from Ragland. An installation with paintings, photographs and ephemera from a host of artists. A little space to listen. Joy, memory and loss condensed into 15 minutes.

A red room to lay down in with a free cup of port or tea and as many biscuits as you like.

‘Intimate and haunting’ (Lyn Gardner, Guardian)

‘Simple, yearning and effective’ (Andrzej Lukowski, Time Out)
