Two Destination Language

Near Gone

Near Gone

Thu 26 Feb | 7.30pm | Full £10 | Conc £6 | Age 16+

Near Gone is a heartfelt story about survival.

Two performers have a difficult story to tell. They come on stage and launch themselves into an hourlong attempt to put into words the utterly unspeakable. Delivered in English and Bulgarian, with pounding gypsy-inspired music, this beautiful performance fills an empty space with two performers, hundreds of fresh flowers and a storm of emotion. A performance piece that packs a punch -transforming your very sense of what it is to be a mother, a father, a child. And you’ll leave more fully alive than ever. Performance company Two Destination Language have worked for the first time with acclaimed choreographer Charlotte Vincent (Vincent Dance Theatre) as their dramaturg on this work.

Devised and Performed by Katherina Radeva and Alister Lownie, dramaturgy by Charlotte Vincent and additional Direction by Charlotte Vincent.

Near Gone is the winner of a Total Theatre Award (2014) and the Pulse Suitcase Prize (2013). Near Gone is a Colchester Arts Centre commission, supported by Arts Council England and The Point, Eastleigh. Two Destination Language is the collaborative performance practice of Katherina Radeva and Alister Lownie.
