Plays for the Strange Stranger is a performance in four parts. The performance is directed towards a character named the Strange Stranger. Using sound, dance and objects we attempt to open a channel of communication to this mysterious entity.

In order to open this channel, the performance challenges our cer- tainty about what is familiar (and human) and what is strange (and non-human). Using Timothy Morton’s theory of ecological thought as a loose starting point, the performance creates a temporary space in which we are confronted with the strangeness of the world around us. Through a disorienting barrage of music, voiceover, shapeshifting objects and transcendental dance, the performance leads us towards the promise of a luminescent super-communion with everything non-human.
