Performed in the historic Sunbeam Bingo Hall, the idea of the doppelgänger is played out as the younger self meets its older self. What happens when your double knocks on the door? How does the story of your life play out through a bingo game? Exploring themes of care and the beautiful banality of life, The Man At The Door (Number 54) is an intriguing dance-theatre work performed by dancers, musicians, and young boys from Firkin Crane Dance Club. The work is created by an accomplished design team and internationally acclaimed 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.

Junk Ensemble was founded by twin sisters and Artistic Directors Megan Kennedy and Jessica Kennedy in 2004. Based in Dublin, the company exists to engage diverse audiences through the creation and presentation of brave, imaginative and accessible dance-theatre work that sheds light on important human issues relevant to society today. Previous Artists-in-Residence at The Tate, the multi-award winning company have built a reputation in Ireland as dance innovators. Junk Ensemble frequently collaborate with artists from other disciplines to produce a rich mix of visual and performance styles that challenge the traditional audience/performer relationship. This approach has led to productions being created in non-traditional or found spaces as well as more conventional theatre spaces. The company often work directly with communities in the creation and performance of their work. Their work has toured to New York, Europe, and throughout the UK and Ireland. Junk Ensemble are Project Artists at Project Arts Centre and Cork Dance Artists-in-Residence at Firkin Crane.
