Simon McBurney: Complicite’s The Encounter

"Simon McBurney transports us into the humid depths of the Amazon, his storytelling served by the enveloping presence of binaural technology.

After premiering at Edinburgh International Festival this August, Complicite's The Encounter is currently play a sold-out run on our stage. We're delighted to support Complicite in their first live-stream as they broadcast The Encounter live online from our theatre to your home by watching through our website on Tuesday 1 March, 7.30pm GMT.

Audiences must wear headphones to watch the live stream, or the effect of the binaural recording will be lost. Any headphones will work, but playing the film out of speakers will not give the same effect. The live stream is free to watch, and will also be available to watch on demand for a week after the live broadcast, until Tuesday 8 March."

Streamed live on 1 Mar 2016

Watch The Encounter (sold out) live from the Barbican, London until 8 March. Headphones MUST be worn to experience the show's binaural sound design (3D audio). Directed and performed by Simon McBurney.
