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. ?I didn’t want to get involved’ Anonymous Neighbor, 1964. ?The world is a dangerous place to live; not because of the people who are evil, but because of the people who don’t do anything about it’ Albert Einstein
