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
where nothing is impossible, just as we know it from the amazing, poetic universe
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, moving
the audience to laughter and identification.
