Since 1987, Vilde Bjerke has been performing for various
audiences. She visits schools and
nursery schools with a one-hour performance based on
rhymes and rigmaroles.
From the very first moment, the children are struck by
her very personal style. Through
poems, rhymes and rhythms, the children and the adults
are guided through a world of
fantasy where nothing is
impossible, just as we know it from the amazing, poetic
of André Bjerke. She
uses every part of her self, she sings and talks and
uses her body.
Personal stories from her childhood accompany the
show. She also deals with sensitive
issues that the children can
identify with, and she brings along toys and puppets,
the audience to laughter and identification.
