The performance feature is about five activists with intellectual disabilities, holding 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.

“This is the most important theatrical work I have ever seen. Thank you to everyone involved on bringing this stunning work to fruition…It was the most profound piece of theatre I have seen in a long time. It should be seen, at a minimum, by anyone in politics, at any level of government, and by as many other people as possible.” – Audience Member, Melbourne
