This event has ended.

Veteran Australian company Back to Back Theatre is known for its dizzying use of film, lighting, and imagery, and this award-winning production has met acclaim worldwide for its portrayal of the problems of storytelling, performed by a cast of actors with disabilities. The ostensible narrative sees the Indian god Ganesh determined to recapture the swastika, the symbol stolen and abused by the Nazi regime. Can Ganesh get it back from the Third Reich?! But then things start to take a new turn when the “making of” the backstory comes to the fore and we learn about the difficulties of the play’s creation. This humorous and enthralling exploration of “behind-the-scenes” stories is poignant, beautiful and disarming.
