For now, the hall at Gertrudes street 101a has gone from hosting events to becoming one of the most influential independent theatres in Latvia and affecting change in the country’s theatre system. In this time GIT has produced and co-produced 48 new productions and held guest performances in 17 countries. At the moment Theatre Gertrudes ielas teatris stages 4-6 new productions each season and offers a monthly program of repertoire performances. Artists from various performing arts backgrounds – theatre, dance, and music – come together in a total of over 100 events each season. Each drawing from their field and complementing one another, they create and develop theatre as an experiential medium that encourages spectators to embrace the challenge when encountering the unknown. The collaboration between GIT and artists is established and based on a shared belief in the value of creative work and the crossing of borders – we support and encourage new impulses and ideas to aid artistic growth. A group of actively engaged partners helps strengthen GIT as a platform for current trends in contemporary theatre in Riga. In this task we equally value our companions - thoughtful and empathetic spectators who want to explore the diverse world of the performing arts.
