There are different types of residencies at Sõltumatu Tantsu Lava:

Research residency programme for dance artists and researchers during the whole season. Six to seven artists/researchers were chosen to articulate their movement and artistic practices (artistic research, practice as research, movement research). The research residency offers monthly lectures and seminars as a support for independent work. The lectures are free and open for everyone.

The house artists in residency, to whom this kind of format offers the possibility to study and execute one’s idea through a longer time period and more variable means than creating a new production would. The house artists in residency rotate in every two years – not active at the moment.

PREMIERE residents – residents that are part of an international platform meant for up and coming choreographers during which five choreographers get the residency and mentoring throughout creating their first full-length dance performance.
