In 1969, Loren McIntyre, a National Geographic photographer, found himself lost among the people of the remote Javari Valley in Brazil. It was an encounter that was to change his life: bringing the limits of human consciousness into startling focus. In this solo performance Simon McBurney traces McIntyre’s journey into the depths of the Amazon rainforest, using binaural technology (3D audio) to build an intimate and shifting world of sound. Award-winning Complicite returns to L.A. (Shun-kin, 2013) with its mesmerising smash-hit show, The Encounter.

Venue: BRAM GOLDSMITH THEATER

Running Time: 2 hours and 10 minutes with no intermission. Headphones will be provided and must be worn throughout the performance.
