The Shadow Whose Prey the Hunter Becomes

“an extraordinary play” New York Times, 2020

Weaving a narrative through human rights, sexual politics, and the projected dominance of artificial intelligence, THE SHADOW WHOSE PREY THE HUNTER BECOMES is a sly theatrical revelation inspired by mistakes, mis-readings, mis-leadings and misunderstanding, SHADOW reminds us that none of us are self-sufficient and all of us are responsible.

The Shadow Whose Prey the Hunter Becomes is a story about a public meeting, the type of meeting you would hope to happen in a certain kind of democracy.

How do we come together to make decisions that are in the best interest of a civic society? This is a play about individual and collective responsibility.

 

Creative Development Artists Andrew Livingston, Brian Tilley, Bruce Gladwin, Mark Cuthbertson, Mark Deans, Rhian Hinkley, Pippin Latham, Sarah Mainwaring, Scott Price, Simon Laherty, Sonia Teuben, Michael Chan & Victoria Marshall

The Shadow Whose Prey the Hunter Becomes has been co-commissioned by Carriageworks, Theater der Welt 2020, Düsseldorf, the Keir Foundation, the Thyne Reid Foundation and The Anthony Costa Foundation, supported by Creative Partnerships Australia through Plus 1, with development support from the Geelong Arts Centre, Arts Centre Melbourne, Melbourne International Arts Festival, the Une Parkinson Foundation, The Public Theater (New York) and ArtsEmerson (Boston).

The Shadow Whose Prey the Hunter Becomes was developed, in part, at the 2019 Sundance Theatre Lab at MASS MoCA.
