In the show Polar Profiles  we present a lot of different persons whom the Arctic hunt brought to Svalbard. The Tromsø lady Woldstad was one of them. In Walk with Wanny  we brought the character out to the mainstreet. Her life was a perfect frame for presenting the special time of Arctic hunt in Tromsø, when adventure and every day life walked hand in hand.
If you want to learn a litle about Tromsø, and have a great experience, this is what to do in Tromsø.

Jeg liker veldig godt å skape klassiske karakterer og dramaturgi, som jeg framfører på utradisjonelle steder.

Jeg jobber for at møtet mellom publikum, skuespilleren og historiene skal være så nært og enkelt som mulig.
