Mila Sanders studied Drama at University of Wales, Aberystwyth before taking an MA in Theatre Design / Scenography at Wimbledon School of Art.
She loves a challenge, and enjoys work on unconventional projects. Elements of theatre that particularly inspire Mila include great writing – from Shakespeare to brand new writing, imaginative collaboration, research, work for and with young people…or a bit of all of them.
Mila’s broad range of experience includes tours of various sizes and locations, puppetry, musicals, site specific work, dance, outdoor theatre, new writing, and Shakespeare. She has also worked with young people and community groups, leading workshops and devising new work.
