The Bystander Project takes the reflections of real people responding to what it’s like to be a bystander in their world and presents them as ‘Verbatim Performance’.Consisting of a performance and an installation the aim of this project is to bring understanding to those living around us. We believe that everyone’s story is interesting and valuable and that by sharing stories we are able to be in the world together with greater empathy.

Bystander was developed in collaboration with Alexandra Nell.
