Back to Back Theatre’s internationally acclaimed work Ganesh Versus the Third Reich comes to Carriageworks for its Sydney debut. This uncompromising production follows the story of Hindu god Ganesh traveling through Nazi Germany to reclaim the swastika, an ancient Hindu symbol. The depiction of Ganesh’s journey is interwoven with a second narrative: the actors themselves facing the responsibility of performing a play on this subject. As the group battle under the leadership of an overbearing director, the actors question their own ethics. Ganesh Versus the Third Reich invites the audience to consider who has the ‘right’ to create art from history’s darkest chapters. Presented by Carriageworks.
