New major work premiering in 2019
Five activists with intellectual disabilities hold a public meeting to start a frank and open conversation about a history we would prefer not to know, and a future that is ambivalent.
Weaving a narrative through the ethics of mass food production, human rights, the social impact of automation and the projected dominance of artificial intelligence in the world, The Shadow Whose Prey the Hunter Becomes 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.
Creative Development Artists Bruce Gladwin, Mark Deans, Sarah Mainwaring, Scott Price, Simon Laherty & Sonia Teuben
The Shadow Whose Prey the Hunter Becomes has been co-commissioned by Carriageworks, 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 Performing Arts Centre and Arts Centre Melbourne.
The Shadow Whose Prey the Hunter Becomes was developed, in part, at the 2019 Sundance Theatre Lab at MASS MoCA.
