Save the Date: Strangelove 9th- 24th March 2017

We’re delighted to finally announce this year’s edition of Strangelove Festival.

From March 9th-24th join us for a sixteen day celebration of artists video, film, performance and sound as Strangelove Festival takes over, the streets and spaces of Folkestone.  With a packed programme of live events, screenings, exhibitions, workshops and talks Strangelove Festival brings together the diversity and talent of over 125 international, UK and local artists. Video works from artists that include, Mark Wallinger, Richard Wilson and Tracey Emin.

This new and unique festival merges live events, screenings and exhibitions at Strange Cargo and the Sassoon Gallery with some unexpected takeovers popping up throughout the programme.  Festival highlights include a Secret Strangelove programme of encounters and performances, with artists including Lucky Bert, that will activate unusual spaces around Folkestone and a special free screening of Kubrick’s Dr Strangelove at the Silver Screen. A special project  by BAFTA nominated screenwriter and director Tony Grisoni, whose film credits include Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas and the acclaimed TV serial Red Riding. 

The Quarterhouse hosts Queer Puppet’s Cabaret and the Premiere of Brighton based group Partial Facsimile’s new work Media OS 5.1 where the audience will be immersed inside a surround sound total environment interacting with their mobile phones.

In addition to the Folkestone based events in March we’ll be connecting with our coastal neighbours moving the festival down the coastline in projects hosted by our partners in Brighton and Eastbourne. More details and announcements to follow and can be found on our website, see the full schedule of events via the programme.
