Dance at Mermaid with The Bystander
Junk Ensemble presents 'The Bystander' at Mermaid Arts Centre on Friday, October 12 at 8 p.m.
Admission is €16 or €14 concession and tickets are available at mermaidartscentre.ie.
The Bystander is an intriguing and adventurous dance-theatre production by multi-award winning dance innovators Junk Ensemble.
Taking its name from the 'bystander effect' phenomenon of the murder of Kitty Genovese outside her apartment in Queens, NYC in 1964, whereby thirty-eight witnesses saw or heard the attack, yet none of them called the police, The Bystander brings to the surface some of the murkier and complex behaviours of contemporary society.
