First of all, I would like to thank the fantastic team who made this fourth festival a reality. As the first international queer Argentine tango meeting, this event aims to celebrate diversity through dance. At the same time, we want to cast the spotlight on some forgotten corners of tango history – the artists and personalities who helped our dance flourish even though they were overshadowed by the mainstream. Finally, we want to give this diversity maximum visibility by holding open-air dances, debates and evening milongas that are open to all. Our approach is primarily militant – questioning the sexual identities and representations of Argentine tango in the collective imagination is our leitmotiv. The theme of this year’s festival is “From Russia with Queer Love”. We have therefore invited artists from Russia, and also from France, Argentina and elsewhere. We are in for an exciting event.
