"...unexpectedly brilliant theater...giving too much away would undermine its maximum effect." —New York Stage Review


Weaving a narrative through the ethics of mass food production, human rights, the social impact of automation and the dominance of artificial intelligence in the world, Shadow is a theatrical revelation inspired by mistakes, misreadings, misleadings and misunderstanding. It is a work that reminds us that none of us are self-sufficient and all of us are responsible. Shadow is a story about a public meeting, the type of meeting you would hope to happen in a certain kind of democracy—it is a play about individual and collective responsibility.

How do we come together to make decisions that are in the best interest of a civic society? No more can be said without giving too much away—Shadow is an "indisputable must-see" (New York Stage Review).

I first saw Back to Back in the atrium of a library in Vancouver where their piece small metal objects was the runaway hit of the Push Festival. Truly one of the most innovative and thrilling theatre companies out there.
