The Encounter

Added to MyNight

ASB Theatre, Aotea Centre

Directed by Simon McBurney and starring Richard Katz, The Encounter tells the true story of National Geographic photographer Loren McIntyre who is lost in a remote area of the Brazilian Amazon in 1969 which leads to a startling encounter that is to change his life. The Encounter uses binaural technology (3D audio) to build an intimate world of sound transmitted through individual headphones, and as McIntyre’s mesmerising tale reaches its climax, this extraordinary performance asks some of the most urgent questions of today about how we live and what we believe to be true.
