The Complicite Production of
conceived, directed and performed by Simon McBurney
inspired by the novel AMAZON BEAMING by Petru Popescu
Broadway's Golden Theatre, 252 West 45th Street, beginning September 20, 2016
Hailed by Ben Brantley of The New York Times as “one of the most immersive theater pieces ever created,” Complicite theater company’s THE ENCOUNTER comes to Broadway this fall in a strictly limited engagement after enormously acclaimed runs in London, Edinburgh and beyond. Conceived, directed and performed by Simon McBurney, this is an utterly mesmerizing play that the The Daily Mailsays is “unlike any other theatrical experience.” And The Daily Telegraph calls it “spellbinding.”
Get ready for a truly original, utterly astonishing night of theater: Once you take your seat, your senses will be engaged in new and breathtaking ways as Simon McBurney leads you deep into the Amazon rainforest. Inspired by real events, THE ENCOUNTER follows a National Geographic photographer as he finds himself lost in a remote area of Brazil. Through innovative aural technology and brilliant storytelling, this is a heart-stopping, riveting and slyly witty night of theater… and an encounter you’ll never forget.
