Pilv is also a translator, mainly from Russian (i.e. the Estonian and Latvian Russian-language authors Lev Rubinshtein, Aleksey Gastev, Sergey Zavyalov, and Mikhail Bakhtin) but also from German (i.e. Celan and Bachmann). He has been active in theatre, translating a number of Russian avant-garde and contemporary plays (Vedensky and Pryazhko, respectively), as well as working as a dramatist for several theatre productions (including co-authoring Omen in 2018, which received the biannual Estonian Prize for Drama).

In addition, Pilv is a literary researcher who focuses mainly on poetic techniques as a means for constructing individual and collective identities, and writes essays and critiques of literature, theatre, and visual art.
