Janina Rajakangas: Venus

Once a girl starts laughing, she needs to keep on laughing

Ha-ha-ha-ha

Once a girl starts clapping she needs to keep on clapping

Clap-clap-clap-clap

Once a girl starts crying she needs to keep on crying

Bu-huu bu-huu bu-huu bu-huu

Once a girl starts screaming she needs to keep on screaming

AAAaaaaa-AAAAAaaa-AAAAAAaaaa-AAAAAaaaaa

Venus is a piece made with teenage girls. It is a piece about the erotization of youth and what it is to be a girl in the 2020s. It is a project about a teenage girl growing up in a patriarchal society.

Venus reveals the part outsiders play in the understanding and appreciation of beauty and value in a girl's life.

It tells you where we are at

It opens everyday feminist fights had by youth

It forces the ghosting needy subject to fall (for a moment)

And draws Venus again by the means of contemporary dance, performance and song.
