Treasure Island is the tale of young Jim Hawkins, who sets sail in 1783 as a cabin boy on the schooner Hispaniola, in search of treasure hidden on a faraway island. In the course of his adventures, he comes across a motley assortment of devious seaman, including the infamous buccaneer Long John Silver. This production of Treasure Island will appeal to adults as well as children aged 8 and up.

The performance of Treasure Island will be in English, in an adaptation that draws extensively on the original language of the story. It will be presented as a radio-style staged reading in which the actors use voice, characterization and gesture, as well as live sound effects and music, to recreate a lively tale in the minds of the audience.

Audio recording of Treasure Island is on demand on the ICRT website.

At R4, we believe that through this “theater of the imagination,” we can promote a culture of live storytelling and creative listening through the great works of literature. Come join us with a heart of adventure and a mind of exploration as we sail into the deepest oceans of our imagination!

Event Mission

Malaysia’s music scene is developing, and though it is not yet as bustling as the Taiwanese and Chinese industries, there are many music creators following their musical paths and many others pushing the development of music evolution. For instance, Malaysia’s annual independent music event “Dongtaidu Music Festival” helps raise awareness for independent music producers from Malaysia. Or, more recently, events such as “JUST PLAY Music Tour” and “Kluang Rocking” have created a platform for singers, writers, and art practitioners to cooperate without profit pressure, media bias, or industry exploitation.

Music creation should not just be a mere hobby hidden away in a bedroom, but fully manifested as an on-stage performance sharing work with an audience. The 2nd annual Malaysia Art Festival in Taiwan will – through the platform of song and lyric writing – provide a platform for Malaysian exchange students in Taiwan to create and interact.

Event Theme

“Music make world unite”.

Music has been split into different categories and genres all because of the systemization implemented by outsiders and record labels.

But music is also a language that allow people everywhere to communicate, to understand each other, and to share their feelings.
We can be moved by music, and we can be driven to a frenzy by music.

Although we are studying in Taiwan, but our hearts are tied to Malaysia. We care deeply for Malaysia and everything about it.

“Zero distance” represents our music, but also our hearts.

23 April 2016, Aquaponics Innomaker 101 魚菜創造家 – 分享會

Saturday, April 23 at 2 PM – 4 PM

To those of you that we at Red Room have had the pleasure of hosting these past few months, you’ve probably seen the cool collection of apparatus scattered around our indoor and outdoor space… Listened to the tinkling of soft running water, surveyed the graceful patterns of the fish living in handmade structures, put your noses up to examine the baby vegetables and herbs sprouting from suspended soil beds.

What is aquaponics?!

a system of aquaculture in which the waste produced by farmed fish or other aquatic creatures supplies the nutrients for plants grown hydroponically, which in turn purify the water.

We’re so excited to announce that our good friends at Aquaponics Innomaker, the geniuses behind our favorite additions to the Red Room space, will be holding workshops to share with the public everything from the benefits of using to how to make your very own Aquaponics system!! This workshop will be the first of many.. so get ready!

Saturday 4/23

Morning session: 10:00~12:00
Afternoon session: 14:00~16:00

Red Room 1st birthday, by Ping Chu

Shared at Red Room’s first birthday celebration at Hua Shan Culture Park.

Wow, a small ripple has become a big wave. 
I would like to salute Roma by sharing a poem by Christina Rossetti:

“Who has seen the wind?
Neither I nor you.
But when the leaves hang trembling,
The wind is passing through.

Who has seen the wind?
Neither you nor I.
But when the trees bow down their heads,
The wind is passing by.”

Character is like the wind.  You don’t see it until it passes through.

In the past month, I have seen many people show their character with selfless commitment to plan this Red Room birthday.

One person, in particular, is Roma.  She is the Mistress of the Red Room.  She knew she would not be able to attend this celebration and she still worked out the details and took on many tasks until the last moments before she leaves for India.

I also want to single out one person, Ayesha. She is in Australia now. Without her, there will be no Red Room. ( Roma and Ayesha, this applause is for you. )

Today, I also want to share a quote from Joseph Campbell:

“People say that what we are all seeking is a meaning for life.. I think that what we are seeking is an experience of being alive.”

Here, at Red Room, We are after the sense of being alive and the pursuit of an adventure.

Every Red Room night has made me feel more alive.

Thank you, Red Room.

Happy First Birthday, Red Room
