"It Stays As It Is" by Mart Kangro, Juhan Ulfsak and Eero Epner in collaboration with Artjom Astrov, Oliver Kulpsoo and Maria Arusoo is a piece about views, rows and the medium price of a square meter. What is it we are lacking? Or what do we dream about? What is this thing that is falling apart and that we can see from our 5th floor window? Window blinds and concentration camp, harmony and window square. What do we think about when we think of real estate? We think about perspectives.

Mart Kangro is a freelance choreographer, director and dancer. In his works, he focuses on the meaningfulness of the human body and movement in theatre as semiotic space-time, and on existential issues of stage situation. His productions have been performed at major festivals in more than 20 countries across Europe. In recent years, he has produced works where he himself is not cast.

Juhan Ulfsak is an actor and director. Since the 1990s, his energetic performing style and artistic principles have done a great deal to define the look of Estonian avant-garde theatre. Working in Von Krahl Theatre as an actor and, in recent years, director, Ulfsak has proceeded from anarchism, punk, decadence, surrealism and conceptualism, but his productions have also recontextualized classic plays.

Eero Epner was a dramatist with Theatre NO99 since the theatre was founded in 2005. He has worked with several dozen directors, including many times with Kangro and Ulfsak.

In 2019 their previous collaboration "Workshop" was awarded with the Performing Arts prize of the annual Estonian Theatre Awards.
