What makes us help someone and what makes us simply stand by?
‘I didn’t want to get involved’ Anonymous Neighbour, 1964
An intriguing and adventurous production by multi-award winning dance theatre innovators, Junk Ensemble. Inspired by the ‘bystander effect’ phenomenon of the murder of Kitty Genovese. Murdered outside her apartment in Queens, New York, thirty-eight witnesses saw or heard the attack, yet no-one called for help.
Performed by internationally acclaimed performers and drawing on the expertise of a sociologist, The Bystander gets under the skin of how we behave, bringing to the surface some of the murkier and complex behaviours of contemporary society.
