About The Encounter

The Encounter follows National Geographic photographer Loren McIntyre as he finds himself lost in a remote area of Brazil in 1969, which leads to a startling encounter that is to change his life. Each seat comes equipped with a pair of headphones. Put them on and experience ground-breaking sound design – plugging into the power of the imagination, and engaging you in new and breathtaking ways as McBurney leads you on an epic journey.

About The Curran

Built in 1922, the 1,600 seat Curran has housed some of the most important productions in history and is considered one of the greatest venues in North America. Under the curation of eight-time Tony Award winner Carole Shorenstein Hays, the Curran has just completed a major restoration and renovation and is reopening with a new mission: to engage new and existing audiences, and attract the most visionary artists in the world, by presenting bold, daring work.
