8. International QueerTango-Festival in Berlin,
12. – 16. July 2018:

Germany's Queer & Tango metropolis invites you to the 8th edition of the Berlin international QueerTango Festival established in 2011, one of the most successful Queer Tango events worldwide. Since then more than 300 registered participants from all over the world come to Berlin every year to dance tango, to learn, to meet friends and to make new contacts. The workshops with many international renowned tango teachers and dancers fill up, and the evening activities and Milongas are extremely well attended. The open and relaxed atmosphere is especially appreciated by participants and guests. The world’s largest QueerTango Festival will take place again at the end of July. So be a part of the fascinating, magical world of QueerTango.

We are looking forward to seeing you!!

Encounters in movement

Since the year 2009, tango has been part of the world culture heritage of the UNESCO. Berlin attracts increasing numbers of tango enthusiasts year after year, since Germany’s capital is the second largest tango metropolis in the world, right after Buenos Aires. How convenient that they are sister cities. Exchanging and advancing, contact and communication, passion and surrender – that’s tango. A unique opportunity to build a bridge between many different everyday worlds.

The International QueerTango Festival Berlin wants to connect the far shore of the Río de la Plata with that of the Spree. The festival not only encourages dialogue between the cultures, but also contributes to the integration of lesbians, gays and transgender on the social stage. Tango is part of the projection of the heteronormative dance culture.

Time for a change in leading!

The QueerTango Festival invites all tango enthusiasts to its „open gender classes“ - regardless of sexual orientation - to break out of the convenient roles, and to experience „leading“ and „following“ in a new perspective. QueerTango is both a symbol of and a medium for being respectful and attentive with each other. It is a dancing dialogue between two people based on an equally balanced exchange – regardless of national boundaries and categories such as origin or social gender.

What is familiar ground for lesbians, gays and transgender in everyday life, can transform into a fascinating discovery in QueerTango for every dancer, in a light, playful and sensual manner. For the term „queer“ not only refers to the origin based in gay subculture, but also to the „queer“, strange, rarely questioned gender roles of tango. The changing roles deepen the understanding of tango and enable an intensive experience of the dance. For advanced dancers the art of giving up and taking the leading role offers a creative challenge and a source of inspiration.

Shall we dance?

Over a period of 5 days, the QueerTango Festival offers a number of workshops with different topics and aspects, taught by internationally renowned teachers of the tango and the queer tango world. Keep your dancing shoes on until the early hours, for there will be milongas with performances and live music every night. Since the workshops booked up very fast last years, an early registration is recommended. For this, you will also enjoy the early-booking discount!
