On Friday 20 September Red Like Our Room Used to Feel will be making its southern hemisphere début at the Melbourne Fringe Festival. After successful runs at the 2012 Edinburgh Fringe, in the Battersea Arts Centre in December 2012, and most recently at the London Literature Festival at the Southbank Centre, we’re really excited to share the show with a new audience.

An intimate 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. Joy, memory and loss condensed into fifteen minutes. A red room to lay down in. A cup of tea, a snifter of port, and space to listen.

‘Intimate and haunting’ – The Guardian

‘it might be a landmark production for poetry in performance. If you are at all interested in literature, memory, performance or joy, you must see this show’ ***** – The List

‘Simple, yearning and effective’ **** — Time Out

‘An intimate, emotional experience guaranteed to win over even the most poetry-phobic’ –  The Observer
