Secret Strangelove encounters designed by artists, will be placed into the Festival, and draw audiences into individual experiences with a single sentence, encapsulating an encounter. Secret Strangelove audiences are invited to these encounters through a single sentence description only. The audience can only guess at what they might encounter - what will happen remains a secret until they visit the location of the encounter where all is revealed.
