Loren McIntyre's account of how in 1971, after years of searching, he discovered the source of the Amazon. Local rumour had it that only the Mayoruma tribe, deep in the Amazon interior, could lead McIntyre to his goal, and he claims that he communicated with tribe's headman by telepathy before reaching the river's source. The explorer's journals are interwoven with detailed narrative by Petru Popescu, author of "The Last Wave".

'Strange and wonderful... Fascinating reading... A sort of Castaneda exercise in mystical and ecological inquiry' Kirkus Reviews

'An extraordinary, gripping tale' Publishers Weekly

'A fascinating tale of ethical and spiritual dilemmas' Wanderlust

Praise for Complicite's stage production:

'A tour de force that shows contemporary theatre at its most immersive and thought provoking' Financial Times

'Spellbinding' Telegraph

'An unforgettably brilliant work of total theatre' Herald

'So astonishing and inventive is this show that it feels like we're witnessing a real turning point in theatre, a performance that will be looked back on in years to come as hugely influential'

--The List

About the Author:

Born in Bucharest in 1944, Petru Popescu was Communist Romania's most provocative young novelist, before he was forced to defect and start writing in English. His Romanian novels Captured and Burial of the Vine are classics of the resistance against totalitarian art.

Moving to the United States, he wrote movies including The Last Wave and Death of an Angel, before returning full time to fiction. The Encounter: Amazon Beaming, Almost Adam, The Return, and The Oasis made him known worldwide. In The Encounter, the theme of exploring and winning one s freedom within oneself makes an unforgettable character from the discoverer of the Amazon s source, Loren McIntyre. Undoubtedly, freedom is Popescu's signature motif. Popescu is married to screenplay writer Iris Friedman, and they live in Los Angeles.
