Milly Rolle | Devised Theatre
Milly’s work spans a variety of creative strands. She directs and facilitates devised theatre-making with young people and she designs/leads workshops that promote learning and development using creativity; focusing on how we can all become more inclusive with how we live in and view the world. She also writes and illustrates. Sometimes the focus is on everyday lived experiences and sometimes it is all about wild imagination. Playfulness, reflection and curiosity are at the heart of Milly’s process; creating space for genuine connection and collaboration.

Ehireme likes to often combine his drama and poetry backgrounds to explore different subjects and themes to encourage creative conversation from multiple perspectives.
