About this show

Ganesh Versus the Third Reich is poignant, beautiful, disarming, full of vulnerability and sly transparency. The story begins with the elephant-headed God Ganesh traveling through Nazi Germany to reclaim the Swastika, the sacred Hindu symbol of auspiciousness. As this intrepid hero embarks on his journey, the actors themselves begin to feel the weighty responsibility of storytellers and question the ethics of cultural appropriation, told through the tale of a young man inspired to create a play about Ganesh, God of overcoming obstacles.
