In 2021, RISING festival will take art and performance from behind closed doors to unexpected public places.
In a post-Covid world, artists have recalibrated their ideas to reach audiences in new and challenging ways.
The RISING 2021 Podcast series asks artists to unravel their ideas on an audio platform.
This episode features Bruce Gladwin, Scott Price, John Safran & Dr. Vikrant Kishore.
Comedian John Safran is no stranger to religious controversy, yet, as he steers a conversation about a Hindu god’s attempt to reclaim the Swastika from the Third Reich, the controversial problem of identity politics takes centre stage.
For context, Hindu academic Dr. Vikrant Kishor intervenes. Under the spotlight, Back to Back theatre’s director Bruce Gladwin and performer Scott Price are interrogated.
Ganesh Versus the Third Reich is part of RISING’s retrospective of Geelong’s pioneering Back to Back Theatre, along with Food Court and small metal objects.
