The Shadow Whose Prey the Hunter Becomes


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.
