DESCRIPTION:
A gently tragi-comic tale of what it means to be human.

Two performers – a man and a woman – on a bare stage with 400 flowers.

Near Gone is a storytelling show about our inevitable departure, but cheating death – for now.  It is set on a beautiful summer day in Bulgaria that turns into a nearly unbearable emotional roller­coster ride as two performers, one Scottish, one Bulgarian, take a deep breath and launch themselves into an hour long attempt to put the utterly unspeakable into words. Merging movement and stillness, text and translation, this is a gentle tragi-comic tale that reaches out, reminds us of what it means to be human and what we can be to each other.
