Synopsis: Haunted by his past, Mike is heading home after many years adrift. Upon arriving he encounters a strange girl at his childhood home who seems to know things about him. With Halloween and the Day of the Dead Festival as a backdrop, he embarks on a dream journey through buried memories about his mother’s death and a violence that changed the townspeople who, like him, are struggling to feel repressed emotional pain so they can start living again. Set in the Inland Empire, a vast area bordering Los Angeles and the desert, riddled with California history and miscreants of variable charm, the play explores how the places from our past are time machines, and that people can still connect even if they are in pain.

Since Charlie refuses to call the cops, tell her family, or see a doctor, Sally has no other recourse but to give the damaged girl the coat off her back, the cash in her wallet, and to wish her good luck. But two weeks after Charlie vanishes, the body of her estranged father is found, beaten to death in an alley. Now Sally is racing to find the missing girl before the police do, since she's far less convinced of Charlie's guilt than they are.

Hello Stranger is the new book by the theater group Motus, whose hybrid work has unleashed dramaturgy and artistic languages as well as produced new scenic forms since its founding in the early 1990s. Hello Stranger is an "atlas of images" and textual fragments focused on eight thematic chapters. These topoi have been transformed throughout the years, through the evolution of time and the bodies that have inhabited Motus's stage. Built around the photographic images of the almost 100 shows that Motus has created, the words are a "choral" accompaniment, almost a polyphonic soundtrack, featuring the short contributions of company members, their fellow artists, and critics.
