9 - 24 March
From 9-24 March 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, Sassoon Gallery, Brewery Tap and ]performance space[ with some unexpected takeovers, like Analogue Ensemble, who will pop up throughout the programme. Festival highlights include a Secret Strangelove programme of encounters and performances with artists including Lucky Bert, occupying unusual spaces around Folkestone, as well as a special free screening of Kubrick’s Dr Strangelove at the Silver Screen Cinema. We also look forward to 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 series 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 an interactive surround sound environment.
