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.

The piece takes its name from the ‘by­stander ef­fect’ phe­nom­e­non of the mur­der of Kitty Gen­ovese out­side her apart­ment in NYC in 1964, when 38 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.
