Polar Tango Productions
Polar Tango Productions works with the FINtango festival makers to bring Finnish Tango music & culture to new audiences around the world.
Polar Tango Productions is a small company based in the countryside of Sipoo near Helsinki. It was founded in February 2020 and is currently funded by Finnish Ministry of Arts & Culture to promote Finnish culture abroad.
Polar Tango Productions works closely with the makers of the FINtango festival, who have brought dozens of events to mostly German audiences since 2013. These events re-create the magic of a typical Finnish lavatanssi - a summertime village dance that is typically held on a lakeside dance stage or in a barn.
Local organisers are offered live bands and DJs playing Finnish Tango music to which audiences are invited to dance. The event package can also include live instruction by professional dance teachers, a sauna, Finnish cuisine, exhibitions and movie screenings.
Polar Tango Productions is now working to expand the reach of the FINtango festivals to audiences beyond Germany.
