In March 2022, Back to Back were announced winner for “Nobel Prize of Theatre”, the International Ibsen Award – the first Australian company to do so.

Back to Back were noted by the award committee as having created “some of the most memorable productions of 21st century theatre”. With the success of their recent film Shadow (based on the play) at SXSW film festival, Back to Back are making a short stop in Canberra for four shows before commencing their tour of Europe.

The Shadow Whose Prey the Hunter Becomes will be performed at the Canberra Theatre Centre from 11 - 13 May 2022.

"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?

Weaving a narrative through human rights, sexual politics, and the projected dominance of artificial intelligence, 'The Shadow Whose Prey the Hunter Becomes' is a sly theatrical revelation inspired by mistakes, mis-readings, mis-leadings and misunderstanding, This is a play about individual and collective responsibility.
