WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Wed. Jan 9th 8pm| Thurs. Jan 10th 8pm| Sat. Jan 12th 8pm| Sun. Jan 13th 1pm| Mon. Jan 14th 7pm Last seen at UTR in 2008 with small metal objects, Back to Back returns with a beautiful and disarming production, full of vulnerability. Ganesh Versus the Third Reich begins with the elephant-headed god Ganesh traveling 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. Formed in 1987 and led by director Bruce Gladwin, Back to Back Theatre has developed a reputation for its unique ability to present the issues of our times with a distinct outsider focus. Previous works include Soft, Food Court, Mental, and Dog Farm.
