In its provocative film debut, Geelong’s Back to Back Theatre states "There is nowhere darker than the future.” Winner, SXSW.
When disability activists Sarah, Scott and Simon hold a town hall-style meeting to address the future
impacts of artificial intelligence, calm discussion soon turns to chaos. Mistakes, misreadings, and
misunderstandings arise and a tense battle for leadership unfolds. Adapted from Back to Back’s
internationally acclaimed stage production The Shadow Whose Prey the Hunter Becomes (‘an
extraordinary play’ – New York Times), Shadow explores an unsettling and uncomfortable past
many would like to ignore, while casting a piercing gaze towards the future.

Screens with Voice Activated.

If you are looking for an experience that is insightful, poignant, and still wildly funny, then Shadow delivers.
