First presented here in 2016, The Encounter blew away audiences.
This is the true story of National Geographic photographer Loren McIntyre lost in a remote area of Brazil in 1969, leading to a startling encounter that is to change his life forever. Simon McBurney’s solo performance threads scenes of his own life with details of McIntyre’s hallucinogenic journey, plunging the audience into a visceral inner voyage. As the mesmerising tale reaches its climax, this extraordinary tour de force asks urgent questions: about how we live and what we believe to be true.
Grab a pair of headphones (essential) and watch the performance online from Friday 15 May at 7pm BST until Monday 25 May 10pm BST
