A BACK TO BACK THEATRE PRODUCTION.
Ganesh Versus the Third Reich is poignant, beautiful, disarming, full of vulnerability and sly transparency.
The story begins with the elephant-headed god Ganesh travelling through Nazi Germany to reclaim the Swastika, an ancient Hindu symbol. As this intrepid hero embarks on his journey a second narrative is revealed: the actors themselves begin to feel the weighty responsibility of storytellers and question the ethics of cultural appropriation.
“Courageous, confronting, intelligent and magisterially considered theatre.” – The Age, 5 stars
