The Encounter

No longer available

ASB Theatre, Aotea Centre


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. This leads to a startling encounter that is to change his life. 


Directed by Simon McBurney and hot from London, Edinburgh and Broadway, this solo performance by Richard Katz traces McIntyre’s journey into the depths of the Amazon rainforest. 


Binaural technology (3D audio) is used to build an intimate and shifting world of sound transmitted through individual headphones. 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.

Introductory notes available for blind and low vision patrons who can enjoy the show through individual headsets.
