On Broadway, a one-of-a-kind encounter played to overwhelming critical acclaim, and audiences were dazzled by a play that must be experienced to be believed.
This is a truly original and astonishing night of theater: Once you take your seat, your senses are engaged in breathtaking ways. Through the use of cutting-edge aural technology and virtuosic storytelling, Simon McBurney leads you on an epic journey from the intimacy of his home in London to deep into the Amazon rainforest.
THE ENCOUNTER tells the true story of National Geographic photographer Loren McIntyre lost in a remote area of Brazil in 1969, which leads to a startling encounter that is to change his life. But the experience simultaneously plunges you into a visceral inner voyage. As McIntyre's mesmerizing 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.
Don’t miss this rare opportunity to encounter true theatrical magic for 12 performances only at The Wallis.
