VABA LAVA THEATRE CENTRE
Vaba Lava is the first theatre centre of the kind in Estonia since the concept of a theatre without a resident company is new to us. In Estonia, there are mostly large state subsidised repertoire theatres, plus a number of independent companies, who in spite of making interesting productions and winning awards for artistic accomplishments, are left to a large extent on their own. There are only some independent companies who are lucky to have their own stage for performing.
Vaba Lava was founded by 9 independent theater and dance companies. However, there are more than thirty independent companies in Estonia, many of whom have been operating for more than 20 years, whom we hope to represent and make more competitive.
Vaba Lava aims at offering independent companies both a space for performing and support services as well as serving as a production centre and hotbed for new experimental and unconventional work.
