Janina Rajakangas

Dance Artist

Janina Rajakangas is a Helsinki-based choreographer, performer, and teacher. Rajakangas creates detailed choreographic material and large-scale scores for groups. Her work revolves around understanding how dance emerges from everyday experiences.

In her current trilogy, the Janina Rajakangas Project deconstructs the structures of patriarchy by examining everyday power dynamics. The trilogy explores themes such as paternal relationships (Meadow 2021), the sexualization of teenage girls (Venus 2022), and inclusivity as choreography (Dancer 2023). The Project’s pieces have been shown at Moving in November, Zodiak – Center for New Dance, Kiasma Theatre and The Place Theatre London.
