Empty Steps, which shows the passing of one day for a brother and sister living on the street, will play at various festivals and schools throughout Denmark.
It is becoming increasingly clear for us, how well the performance works with schools and youths, especially followed by a talk with the artists about the performance and the situation of street children throughout the world.

UNDERWOOD plays again
In the summer of 2015, GLiMT created the sitespecific performance, UNDERWOOD, in the natural park of Vestamager Naturpark. It became a great succes, with more than 30 intimate performances, and around 1300 audiences, young and old.
In May & June 2016, we will develop the performance further, and make the performance return for another 3 week run.
The audience follows a girl in her quest to find her father, and journeys through the Underwood, which increasingly begins to resemble parts of the girls subconsciousness.
It is both nature and theater fused together, which enhances both experiences. It is suited for both young people and adults.
We are also in the plans to adapt the performance to forests, close by two theatres in other parts of Denmark. It will be an experiment opening up the possibilities to bring the performance out beyond Denmark on tour.
