come say, speak, whisper, shriek like a banshee breathe chant holler yelp sing and quiver through what it is you have to share... The Stage Time and Wine @ Red Room is a space to celebrate the amateurism and the passion to something we all love dearly: word and sound

...and so it began STAGE TIME & WINE I NOVEMBER 2009

“It is my belief that Red Room is not just an event anymore. Together we did create a community or a tribe of like minded people who want to participate in something bigger than themselves.� Ping Chu

Red Room founders Ayesha Mehta and Ping Chu IV


ROOM TO GROW

5 YEARS AND COUNTING… The all-encompassing entity now known as the Red Room began as a single event with a single, simple desire: to create a space where sharing our selves and our inspirations would be celebrated, and where we could practice listening to others with openness and warmth. It began as a surprise, as a living-room-soiree exercise that almost 100 people attended in its first night, having heard rumours of an occasion they felt compelled to participate in. The first Stage Time and Wine event was filled with laughter, raucousness, honesty and a room full of strangers entering into a state of intimacy and giving towards each other. It won us all, and has continued every month to this November 2014, its 5th year anniversary. Stage Time & Wine @ The Red Room is a build-your-own event where each participant is invited to contribute to the creation of the evening. We create the bar together by sharing what we have; the food by each adding to the stew; the performances by volunteering our thoughts and talents and ideas and stories; and ultimately our ears and our hearts and our minds open to absorbing and respecting each and every one of those stories that is shared. As the months passed so the Red Room evolved, with people developing relationships and forming communities that led to more and more events under the Red Room banner. Along with a number of recurring events such as Aside @ the Red Room, Stage Time & Juice, Red Room Radio Redux, Stage Time & Wine, and Drew’s Drama’s Sessions, there have been major celebrations for various causes and community interests such as Artists Beat the Flood and Playing for Change.

Stage time and wine I thank you all for coming tonight, on behalf of the community and i Say something about a stage time and wine poem.. Moments where we analyze what to do, and what not to do.. Well, screw explaining that I’m up here so that’s what I’m going to do. I want to tell you all what’s been going on in my mind.. Crunching new grooves with a 19 year old grind.. It gives me headaches, awkwardly personal “proud moment” smiles.. An unorganized database, receiving an endless number of untitled files.. You gel up your hair, your hat cries out “STYLE” Your body type comes with a variable list of numbers to dial.. I’m working on mine! Jogging mile to mile.. A combined effort at a developing mentality, with assorted perspectivesStage time and wine, is a place of… Well wineSomething that makes it special..special is what you’ll find.. The word artist holds no boundaries, its not marked by a mustache or a hat… Those who have both are simply gifted, and well..i didn’t get it so screw THAT! According to me here, once you’ve entered the red room..planet earth is flat.. The ultimate symbol indicating that we’re all equal ..were all artists here- how about that? It’s a time for us to share! BYOB should change to BYOSOMETHING TO SAY Everyone has something to share, its usually the ones who are shy..who sit back and compare.. C’mon guys, that simply isn’t fair- but don’t go as far as saying “I CAN say anything..its not like they care” WE’RE here to listen, to enjoy, to emotionally react the way you do biting into a sweet chocolate eclaire.. I wake up with theories, which are completely genius.. But as the day ticks along, it deteriorates to something meaningless.. This random rambling is an example of that- but I love the act of performing..(AND YES THIS IS CONSIDERED A PERFORMANCE..). That’s a fact Art comes in all different shapes and forms..the ones labeled eccentric or exoticAre just ones there are no real words for.. Ever notice the lack of vocabulary we hold to describe certain things of wonder.. Beauty..stimulating and depressing – sigh.. We use our bodies, the tone of voice, our facial expressionsI was gifted with the control of my eyebrow muscles..and so..tonight I will take the role of goofy. Stage time and wine.. Time for all of us to shine.. Hence the much brighter lighting –to symbolize the divine.. Bring out the person inside of you tonight- do so through the love for the spoken word.. Mimes are allowed as well.. Like I said artist holds no boundaries or lines.. There are beverages in the back, grapey wine with some chai-ey chai. Let us all enjoy the nightIn hopes for more random ramblings in sight. BY MANAV MEHTA 2010

RED READING RED Dearest Red Room, It’s been a painting since we last spoke. I trust you’re as healthy as ever And getting accustomed to the freedom we seek. My prose has been lacking, being away from you like this. My painting on the other hand, is never without its purpose. Feeling in the dark as it does, knowing the truth is out there. What it feels suggests there is a roulette at play during all parts of our day. Every now and then I take a risk and gamble, Much to the dismay of Winston, Sophia, Loren and Mellow, (my dogs). Like the night my motorbike rode me into a blossom tree. Leaving me stunned on the ground then spinal tap bound. An episode resulting in a true love found, (my nurse). Tell me Red Room, with all one’s rehearsing, ranting, ravings and romanticizing. What do those people in front of you, who so kindly un-shingle their chastised feet for you, have to say about where we are? Is the enclosed writer free to read your mind? Does the view seem real to you? What would you hear if we remain silent? I am without a doubt a very naïve post modern expressionist by day And a surreal impressionist by night. A midnight toker, a self critical insomniac and a red wine prophet in need. A thinker, a lover, a dreamer, a doer and a prover. Am I talking to myself again or are you there with me? A dead man once told me “Be accommodating to all those souls, but always allow time for your own.” Red to me is the colour of the soul. It is that which flows throughout us and came from a place we have no fine knowledge of. Knowledge these days is over stated. It is tainted. It is steered with its horns by invisible clutches. It is a rooftop with no visible ledge. It is outside this space.

Red Room, you are coursing through all our veins. You are always here when we appear. We won’t forget to lend an ear. What we learn from you is nothing new. We come here because of you. And if every generation has its beat, then why wait for the stomp of feet. Or the climate change to raise the heat. Are we here to raise a glass? Are we here to stop a farce? Are you the one to ask? Should we treat your stage as our mask? Is your wine table there to help us read our line? All these questions are answered in time, and time is all it takes. Once you’ve realized what time takes from you. But back to the point and the point being sharp. All the world is a stage and all in the world light up their rightful time. Yet when the world whines not all of us hear in time. Is this why when I need water all I want is wine? Is it darkest just before the dawn? How would so many know, Lost in their cities of polluted night. Red Room, must we come here to be read? What if I am blue and know not what to do? What if I am green with envy? What if my words have a silver lining? What if my golden tongue knows no rest? And if from darkness comes the light, then one’s truth must surely be revealed. At which point, as a soul would state, there is no turning back. There exists no choice. Alive is felt once out of one’s hive. There is more than one sky in which one must try. Blake noted all men seeing life through narrow chinks of his cavern. May we not let that happen. The dead man is me, I just like projecting ahead. And here resides my biggest clue to each and every red rumor of you. By J O E L, 2 0 1 2 9

When Will He Scratch Me Again? A Parody of Owl City: When Can I See You Again?

Get outta bed and the world clears round you Feet on the ground Gonna make some breakfast You break a smile ‘cause you almost forgot to dine It’s just been such a long time And then I hear his meows and whi-ines he’s still got food he should be fi-ine Black-cat- why does he do this everytime (‘time’ repeated) But now I’m ma-aking my breakfast though I can ignore his shouts for I don’t know but then he raises up and out cla-aws go. Oh-No! I think (Chorus) When will he scratch me again? Oh-oh-oh-oh (X3) Trying to run from his claws of do-om But then remember his secret weakness I turn around and hold out my hand Gotta be quick and strike fast then to my uttermost surprise I can’t believe my bloodshot eyes all he wanted was a ti-i-i-ickle (repeat ti-i-i-ckle) Well with that I’m really quite surprised he just wanted a tickle all the time not something stupid like a sour lime Oh-No (Chorus) And now I know why the black cat meows and whines Tickle most of the time or you are going to di-ie But he can’t do it because he’s got gre-en ey-eyes and because I won’t let him get the might But I like because he’s got the guts to try (Chorus) Now I know why most cats meow and whine though It’s because they love tummy tickles so I’ll offer guidance if you’re a bit slo-ow (Chorus X3) by Conrad Green

RED ROOM SCREAMS sloppy, breezy personal anecdotes of spring screamers forged into real stories • an hour in which stories were told with a musical beat • a fixed feeling of togetherness and connection ~ words by disha patel

Spring Scream, Kenting, 2013...when the music stopped and it was time to wrap up the day, Manav Mehta, Disha Patel, Richard Carlyle and Rene Kamm were the torch bearers for a gathering of Red Room Screams.

HUASHAN READING FESTIVAL

Red Room was invited by Alleycats, a supporting sponsor of the Huashan Reading Festival, September 2013. Red Roomers Zach Touzen, David Gentile, Holly Harrington and Manav Mehta represented the Red Room. 在 9/9 我們很榮幸的在『華山1914文化創意產業園區』與『Alleycat 餐廳』共同贊助的個【華文朗讀節閱讀季】上分 享了紅房。除了 Manav 我們的主持人,還有 David, Zach 以及我一起分享我們最喜愛的中文、英文和法文作品,這是 一個很特別獨特的經驗。在分布極廣年齡層聽眾裡面我們也看到了熟悉的面孔,伴隨著用中文演說的壓力,我敢說有 別以往在 Red Room 輕鬆週六夜晚,這次是即為不容易的與讓人稍微傷腦筋。但是呢!當我們聽到觀眾的回饋,他們 從來不曾聽過紅房的大夥們的笑聲與掌聲,就覺得這一切非常值得了。希望我們可以讓紅房為傲,也很快的,我們將 會有更多愛好書籍朋友們加入我們的紅房社群。From Holly.

It is my vision to position Red Room as the mustexperience event for all foreign travellers to Taiwan. Let’s make this happen together.”
