From the website in Norwegian:

Yggdrasil er en forestilling influert av østlig og vestlig popkultur, med norrøne guder, vesener og naturfenomener. Gammel norsk og asiatisk kultur møter vår tid. En familieforestilling med mye musikk, bevegelse, kamp og dans i en spennende fortelling om Arethas dramatiske reise gjennom et eventyrlandskap hvor virkelighet og fantasi blandes i nydelige levende sceniske tablåer.

Short snippets of my work in the show


I played and danced the role of the Nordic Mythology Goddess Frøya.

I had many lines (thank you) and I  loved how I could put a lot of my “physicallity” into this role and in that way make Frøya unique in this fantasy context. This is my first acting role and I am so thankful for given the opportunity to grow and learn within this caracter. II also really loved to work togheter with the Youth cast, my youth dancers and the professionals. It became a nice mix on and off stage and good group all together to work with ♥
