In September Oudolf Field is at its most glorious, as the large perennial meadow bursts in to full bloom. To celebrate, Hauser & Wirth Somerset presents Field Studies: a live series of music, poetry and performance in the garden’s Radić Pavilion.
The first event in the series is the critically acclaimed touring theatre production Near Gone, co-written and performed by Alister Lownie and Katherina Radeva, the collaborative performance company Two Destination Language.
Weathering a storm of emotion, Near Gone is inspired by a personal story of a near death experience. Delivered in English and Bulgarian through a sequence of repeated events interspersed with fragmented story-telling, performers Alister Lownie and Katherina Radeva are supported by 400 fresh flowers which form a beautifully fragile environment for this story of survival.
Near Gone was winner of the Pulse Fringe Suitcase Prize in 2013 and the Total Theatre Award for Innovation, Experimentation and Playing with Form at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe in 2014.
Tickets are £5
The pavilion is partially exposed to the elements, please wear appropriate clothing
