Near Gone & RADAR Late

Sold out
Part of Radar 2014

RADAR is the Bush Theatre's annual festival of new writing, featuring new shows, sneak peeks and a host of late-night events. Every night is different, so scroll down to see what's included in your ticket.

Near Gone

by Katherina Radeva and Alister Lownie
A Colchester Arts Centre commission

Two performers have a difficult story to tell. They come on stage and launch themselves into an hour long 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. Near Gone is the winner of Pulse Fringe Suitcase Prize 2013 and Total Theatre Award Winner 2014.
