Watch show-of-the-year ‘The Encounter’ for free on Tuesday night


Simon McBurney and Complicite’s mind-blowing ‘The Encounter’ is an odyssey to the furthest reaches of what theatre can do, a high-tech binaural head trip that starts with McBurney casually chatting to the audience and ends with the distinct impression that the fabric of space-time is disintegrating.

It has had a whole heap of five-star-reviews – including from Time Out – and is almost totally sold out. But rejoice! It’s streaming live at 7.30pm on Tuesday night and bookmark this page because you'll be able to watch it right here.



Strap yourself in for the ride –and remember to wear headphones.

Watch some celebrities – including Laura Dern, Oscar Isaac, Rowan Atkinson and Benedict Cumberbatch – talk about how wonderful 'The Encounter' is for about 30 seconds.
