In 2018/2019 Sõltumatu Tantsu Lava is hosting a residency programme for dance artists and researchers during the whole season. 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.
