The finnish painter Helene Schjerfbeck was versatile, original, intelligent, had a great sense of humour – and a hard time with her suitors. She has been and still is a great inspiration for many artworks and interpretations, and she is increasingly recognised, also worldwide. Helene’s works include 40 self-portraits, which has inspired us too to build our program for the season 2020-21 around the theme “Self-portrait”. Many artists from different fields still find self-portraits the greatest challenges in their artistic work. Self-portrait also rises many in-depth questions. How do people see themselves and their persona? Is there something shameful in self-portraits? Is a self-portrait beautiful even when it is ugly?

“Light” is a tribute to the beautiful Janakkala church that celebrates it’s 500th anniversary this year, and where we have been lucky to perform every year since the festival started in 2016. The program is built around themes often present in religions. It brings out the feelings of safety and intimacy that community and the church as a building can give, but also the inner light and joy as a result of faith.
