In 2009 Ilja started writing. Her first play is Dusty Lane, a play for the military about PTSD. Her second play Fransiscus was staged by Monique Masselink and Ilja performed this text for transgenerational audiences. Since she moved to France Ilja has written several short plays for children, translates texts together witha native speakers and is performing for children and teenagers at schools. Favorite themes in her work are storytelling, adapted versions of fairy tales, trauma, humour, mythology and resiliancy.
