Complicite / Sydney Festival. Drama Theatre, Sydney Opera House. January 18 – 28, 2017.
With just one man on a stage cluttered with mics and speakers, The Encounter is a compelling innovation of sound and storytelling which makes excellent Festival programming.
This is compelling theatre produced by the famed British company Complicite and directed Simon McBurney.
With each in the audience wired up with headphones, The Encounter’s only real production value is sound – and a few cross lights from Paul Anderson.
