Inspired by the book Amazon Beaming by Petru Popescu, this extraordinary one-man show traces a unique journey into the depths of the Amazon rain forest

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

The Encounter opened at the Edinburgh International Festival in August 2015 performed by Simon McBurney, and received its London premiere at the Barbican in February 2016 before embarking on a world tour

This official tie-in edition includes 32 colour pages of production stills, behind-the-scenes photos, and essays about bringing the show to life


‘ ... a tour de force that shows contemporary theatre at its most immersive and thought-provoking’ ~ Financial Times

'Masterful storytelling from a man and a company who are incapable of remaining within known theatrical boundaries' ~ Independent

'The stuff of a twisting, turning, thoroughly engrossing fairytale ... McBurney captures the metaphysical spirit - as well as the pulse-quickening heart - of the experience with this head-turning, spellbinding show' ~ Telegraph

'The effect is a sound-cloud of a process, in which fact and fiction, past and present, research and production intermingle, spinning a story out of the air' ~ Variety

‘McBurney pulls the thread of a story from out of the noise of contemporary western life and the sounds of the jungle to create a meditation on interconnectedness, perception and time’ ~ Guardian
