Since 1987, Vilde Bjerke has presented
her father's poems for various audiences.
Recently it was the younger generation of Trondheim who
could enjoy her
performance. In the course of one week, she visited
several nursery schools with
a one-hour performance based on the rhymes and rigmaroles
of André Bjerke.
From the very first moment, the children
were struck by her very personal style.
Through poems, rhymes and rhythms, the children and the
adults were guided
through a world of fantasy 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 in the hour-long
performance. Personal stories
from her childhood about how the poems came about,
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
everybody's scapegoat, was particularly successfull.
For the chlldren it was an experience
that they will remember for a long time.
For the personnel, it was an hour of education, and an
inspirational example of how
one can use rhymes and rigmaroles in nursery schools. If
Vilde Bjerke should show up
in your district, we highly recommend her performance!
