The Shadow Whose Prey the Hunter Becomes


The internationally acclaimed Back to Back Theatre from Australia is a leading voice in inclusive and virtuoso theatre performances. It was recently awarded the much sought-after International Ibsen Award. In «The Shadow Whose Prey the Hunter Becomes», three people inquisitively and controversially discuss pressing societal issues at a public meeting. This is a play about human rights, sexual politics and artificial intelligence – and about our individual and collective responsibility. A humorous and sensitive theatrical exploration!


«An extraordinary play!»

(New York Times)
