JANINE HARRINGTON is a choreographer and performer born in Canterbury, UK, who lives and works nomadically.  Her work, usually for non-theatre contexts, foregrounds ideas about relationship and agency. She has been commissioned by Brighton Festival, South East Dance, AIR Studio/ Islington Borough Council, Siobhan Davies Dance, Big Dance, The Hepworth Wakefield and Gi20. Between February and March 2016 she was in residence at  Villa Empain, Brussels where in June she presented Satelliser: a dance for the gallery in the context of Répétition, curated by Asad Raza and Nicola Lees. In September 2016 she was artist in residence at Brandwatch as part of Brighton Digital Festival and through partnership with South East Dance. In January 2017 she showed screensaver (1, gallery version) at Villa Empain in the context of Décor, curated by Asad Raza, Dorothea Von Hantelmann & Tino Sehgal.

As performer/ interpreter

Video: Stedelijk Crew Report: Superfan van Tino Sehgal / Tino Sehgal's "superfan" talking about her experience of visiting us interpreting Yet Untitled. Jes visited us nearly every day and I place this video here in lieu of documentation, which Tino does not allow.

As a performer I work mainly with Tino Sehgal (2012-) and have interpreted the following works:

These Associations (2012) Tate Modern turbine hall, July-Oct 2012 and Palais de Tokyo Oct-Dec 2016.

Yet Untitled (2013) Venice Biennale, May-Nov 2013; Kremms am Donnau, Austria, April 2013; The Stedelijjk Museum Amsterdam June-July 2015; KIASMA Helsinki September 2015; Leopold Museum Vienna, 2016; Palais de Tokyo Oct-Dec 2016.
