West Coast Premiere

One of Australia’s leading and respected contemporary theater companies, Back to Back Theatre creates new forms of modern theater imagined from the minds and experiences of a professional ensemble of actors with a disability, giving voice to the social and political issues that speak to all people. Their acclaimed and highly original production Ganesh Versus the Third Reich is a self-reflective revelation on the creation of theater, through a central hero’s adventure of epic proportions. The story begins with an actor portraying Ganesh, who embarks upon a mission through Nazi Germany to reclaim the ancient Hindu symbol being exploited as the swastika, to restore it to its proper context. Poignant, beautiful, disarming, full of vulnerability and theatrically sly transparency, Ganesh Versus the Third Reich delves into the weighty responsibility of storytellers, and questioning the ethics of cultural appropriation.

Supported in part by Australia Council for the Arts and Arts Victoria.
