This new work weaves 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.
From the show:
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 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.
THE SHADOW WHOSE PREY THE HUNTER BECOMES is a story about a public meeting, the type of meeting you would hope to happen in a certain kind of democracy.
How do we come together to make decisions that are in the best interest of a civic society? This is a play about individual and collective responsibility.
"When Disability Isn’t a Special Need but a Special Skill: Two productions at the Under the Radar Festival ask if the theater is ready to embrace the artistry of autism and other once disqualifying conditions."
"A series of conversations about the dialogue around political correctness…the cast, all disabled…each debate that description of themselves…The collectively built text speaks well to the uncertainties around ethics and language in our time."
Score: 96%. "The Public Theater's always enlightening Under the Radar Series in its 16th year is now in full swing with 22 offerings and one of its most impressive is 'The Shadow Whose Prey the Hunter Becomes.'"
"The long arty title and the vague, grand description are misleading. 'The Shadow etc.' has a straightforward subject and a clear point of view: 'We are a group of people with disabilities, fighting oppression and injustice,' says one of the four performers."
