Typically, a play is meant to be experienced on stage, in person. “The Encounter” however, is not a typical play.
This sonic journey required Broadway audiences to wear headphones as the show’s writer, director and star, Simon McBurney, told the story of a National Geographic photographer who was lost in the rainforest of the Javari Valley in Brazil.
The show is now officially available in its entirety on YouTube. It should be noted that in order to experience the full 3D audio that the show is intended to deliver, you must watch the video with headphones on. It’s worth it.
