Sõltumatu Tantsu Lava (STL) is a theatre and a contemporary dance platform in Telliskivi creative district. STL is focused on producing performances that deal with movement and body while using the expressive means inherent to contemporary performing arts. In addition to performances, STL hosts workshops, creative residencies, educational lectures and organizes Premiere — a platform for up and coming choreographers and a free meeting platform for artists called Greenfield. STL has taken the position of developing Estonian contemporary dance and acting as the spokesman of the field.
STL takes on the challenge to become an innovative melting pot and an open platform for the new generation of choreographers who believe that art can never be done with.

I have taken the role of a hang glider pilot, the hang glider called STL: I try to catch the moment of taking off, check the wind under wings and sometimes pull the hand brake while performing an aerobatic stunt.
On the ground it means repairing ventilation pipes when necessary; having expert opinions on the topic “dance art” in my pack pocket at all times; predicting the number of spectators or the numbers on a balance sheet for the next five years; and, in moments of weakness, finding myself sliding down the hill once again.
