“The Encounter” Genius 3D Binaural Sound “Concert” (May 15-22)

Three years after the exclusive, limited engagement of The Encounter on SF’s Curran stage, they’ve partnered with our friends Simon McBurney and Complicité to present an entirely free, online production of the critically acclaimed production — available for one week only.

In The Encounter, Simon McBurney guides you through “a walk across the brain,” supported by a genius binaural (3D) sound system designed by Gareth Fry with Peter Malkin. All you need is a set of earphones to experience the Tony-winning magic that Mercury News called “Hypnotic. Amazing. Insanely innovative.”

How to Watch & Listen

The Encounter is free to watch online from May 15 at 11am until May 22 at 2pm PT.

– IMPORTANTYou’ll need to wear headphones in a quiet room to get the full 3D binaural effect (any stereo headphones will work) but you won’t get the same effect if you play over speakers.

While they’ll miss seeing you at the theater in person, and they are thrilled to share this “unique and mesmerizing experience” (Mission Mission) with you, to experience together, in our homes.

Your final day to watch/listen to the mesmerizing 3D Binaural sound experience is May 22nd at 2pm. The show was recorded in London in 2016 and has never before been available online.

Disclaimer: Please double check event information with the event organizer as events can be canceled, details can change after they are added to our calendar, and errors do occur.
