Near Gone

Tue 26 Nov 2013

This heartfelt story of survival is a dramatic reminder of just how fragile life is. Delivered in English and Bulgarian, with pounding gypsy-inspired music, this thought-provoking performance fills an empty space with two performers, hundreds of fresh flowers and a storm of emotion that will transform your perceptions of what it is to be a mother, a father, a child - and leave you more fully alive than ever.'I found tonight’s show immensely powerful and life-enhancing. The way you interleaved humour with the trauma, and the way you used dance to express what words couldn’t, was really wonderful.' Audience member, Colchester

'Really the most moving performance I’ve seen!' Audience member, Salisbury

'Kinda perfect' Audience member, Liverpool

Plus post-show discussion.
