I live with my husband and twins on Holmlia. I live on the basement floot in a low block of flats. We have a garden with a view to the forest.

I am a swimming-guard at Lambertseter swimming-club. Apart from that I enjoy making jewellery in my spare time.

I belong to the twin mothers, the gullible, the naive, the longing, the temperamental, the just, the magnanimous, the loving, the absent-minded, the sensitive and the ones crying over films, the talkative, the music-lovers, the ones who worry, the jobseekers, but I do not belong to the the over-religious, the unserious, the lazy or the shirkers.

I am born and bred in Oslo, my family and my friends live here. Oslo for me is a city filled with the sounds of the tram against the tracks, the trees swaying in the wind, the train passing by, the traffic, sometimes a siren, drunk people about to hit town, the neighbour clearing his throat on the balcony, the kids playing in the streets, singing, childrens cry and laughter, girlfriends giggling and boys acting cool. People talking and high heels clattering on the pavement.

I don't have a relationship to An Enemy of the People at this point, I can't remember the play even though I have read it many years ago. It mixes with several different plays in my head. But I am walking out of these performances with a relationship to the drama, and this I appreciate. And that "the strongest man in the world is the one standing the most alone"? – He just sounds like a very lonely man.

A turningpoint for me happened when I suddenly and brutally lost one of my best friends. I am more concerned mith my family and friends than before, trying to be there for them and I let them know how much they mean to me.

For the performances I am taking the 80 E bus from Sloreåsen to the Nationaltheatre.
