We know these names. These are the Estonian public intellectuals par excellence, who just cannot stay silent. Short lectures are given on topics that they have had on their minds for a long time but have not found an outlet before. Now they have their chance. The speeches are one-off and the impact will probably be unexpected for the speakers as well. Come and hear them out. This could be the last lecture you will ever need in your life.


The class of 2024 of the Estonian Academy of Music and Theatre hijack the flat where otherwise Only Rivers Run Free. From 17 to 20 June in the former space of Vaba Lava (currently operating under the name JAIK). Party at a stranger’s flat is a risk. A risk that the young actors of the academy of music and theatre are willing to take. During three days and nights Ekspeditsioon's stage created for Only Rivers Run Free will host different performances. Mistakes and failures — guaranteed; unexpected successes and unique encounters — guaranteed; jazz and Ukrainian folk — guaranteed; famous people — guaranteed; pancakes, tinfoil and half a kilo of sausage — guaranteed; one performance by the Tallinn City Theatre — guaranteed; a three-day marathon without a guarantee that the participants will push though — also guaranteed. Performative experiments are inspired by the particular stage and the result is unknown. Stage design originally created by Arthur Arula will be repeatedly redefined during the four days. Performed act ivities are reactive in nature, with a less strict structure, risky and include unexpected moments – just like a party in a stranger’s flat.

This is a collaboration between Ekspeditsioon and Estonian Academy of Music and Theatre.
