About the Show
Back to Back Theatre returns to Carriageworks with a major new theatrical work, The Shadow Whose Prey the Hunter Becomes. Five activists with intellectual disabilities hold a public meeting to start a frank conversation about a history we would prefer not to know, and a future that is ambivalent. A biting narrative on human rights, moral codes, artificial intelligence and social hypocrisy – ‘Shadow’ is about the changing nature of intelligence in contemporary society.
A theatrical revelation inspired by mistakes, misreadings, misleadings and misunderstanding, ‘Shadow’ reminds us that none of us are self-sufficient and all of us are responsible.
