Performed in Sunbeam Bingo Hall, Man At The Door (Number 54) is a new dance-theatre work about meeting your other self. One theory is that if you meet your doppelgänger, only one of you will survive. Mirrors, shadows, alter egos and doubles are recurring themes, alongside the struggle and complicity with our other self. The production is performed by dancers and young boys from Firkin Crane Dance Club and set in a 1950’s style bingo hall where the audience play a real game of bingo – playing out their lives as a game. Man At The Door (Number 54) is created by an accomplished design team and multi-award winning dance innovators Junk Ensemble, who are Cork City Dance Artists-in-Residence at Firkin Crane & Project Artists at Project Arts Centre.
