Milja Sarkola is a Finnish director and playwright whose works explore topics such as narcissism, parenthood, sexuality and the boundary between the public and the private. She graduated from the Finnish Theatre Academy in 2006 and has since directed for a number of professional theatres. With her works, Sarkola sets out to explore the self and others both intimately as well as from a distance, as a phenomenon within a larger context.
