    GANESH VERSUS THE THIRD REICH
    The story begins with the elephant-headed god Ganesh travelling 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. Cleverly interwoven in the play’s design is the story of a young man inspired to create a play about Ganesh, god of overcoming obstacles. He is an everyman who must find the strength to overcome the difficulties in his own life, and defend his play and his collaborators against an overbearing colleague. The show is made before our very eyes and takes on its own life. It invites us to examine who has the right to tell a story and who has the right to be heard. It explores our complicity in creating and dismantling the world, human possibility and hope.

  • Jewellery exhibition fundraiser

    • Thursday, November 21, 2019 at 07:00 PM
    • 9/27 Hodgson St, Brunswick (suggest you come to the alternative door at 22 Gray St)

    We invite you to a special evening for EMILY's List members and friends on Thursday 21st November. Our long-standing supporters of EMILY's List and friends of Joan Kirner, Graham and Glenyys Romanes, are hosting a fundraiser exhibition on behalf of EMILY's List. For 35 years Graham has collected African Trade Beads, the bulk of which are 19th Century Venetian glass beads. Graham will tell the story of the intersection between 19th century Venetian-made beads, their manufacture and trade, and North African culture. On display and for sale will be a collection of millefiori and chevron beads and jewellery created by him over his years of travel and aid and development work. Graham and Glenyys will be donating to EMILY's List 25% of the proceeds from the sale of antique, vintage and contemporary beads and jewellery so it's a great chance to purchase gifts while supporting our organisation. Drinks and light refreshments will be served.

    Date: Thursday 21st November
    Time: 7pm
    Location: 9/27 Hodgson St, Brunswick (suggest you come to the alternative door at 22 Gray St, Brunswick)
    RSVP: email graham@ethiopia.com.au or phone 0419 559 138 (for catering and seats)

    P.S. If you're not able to join us on the evening, Graham's exhibition and sale will also be on Saturday 23rd November 10am-5pm at the same venue.
