The Encounter (Complicite & Simon Mc Burney) says
Put on a set of headphones and let your guide – performer Richard Katz – take you into a world where the ear sees more than the eye. You’ll soon discover why this thrilling production has heads around the world spinning.

In 1969, National Geographic photographer Loren McIntyre became hopelessly lost in a remote part of the Brazilian rainforest while searching for the Mayoruna people. His encounter was to test his perception of the world, bringing the limits of human consciousness into startling focus.

Directed by Simon McBurney, this tour-de-force performance traces McIntyre’s journey into the rainforest, using 3D audio technology to build an intimate and shifting world of sound. The result is a fully immersive theatrical experience exploring interconnectedness, perception and time.

Inspired by the book Amazon Beaming by Petru Popescu.
