The story of a young girl’s brush with death is told in a dance production at the Castle Theatre in Wellingborough, tomorrow (Friday, March 6).

The show is Near Gone and it has been produced by Two Destinations Language, who are Alister Lownie and Katherina Radeva.

The performance starts with two performers on stage with hundreds of fresh carnations.

The woman speaks in Bulgarian and the man struggles to translate.

But when telling the story in words becomes too much the woman stops and dances to pounding Eastern European gypsy music.

Over an hour the audience then finds out about the story of survival and about the intricacies of the couple’s relationship.

Two Destination Language aims to make striking work about identity, community and boundaries.

Near Gone is their latest production and has received great acclaim and numerous awards.

Tickets for the performance cost £10 and can be purchased by calling 01933 270 007 or online at www.thecastle.org.uk.
