Park Avenue Armory

Massive Attack V Adam Curtis

“ Music and celluloid have been used together countless times but never quite like this.”
The Guardian (London)

​An extraordinary collaboration connecting the dark, intense music and visual work of Robert Del Naja of Massive Attack with the thought-provoking vision of documentary filmmaker Adam Curtis, this site-specific event is a new kind of imaginative experience that integrates music, film, politics, and breathtaking moments of illusion in a hallucinatory ride through the dreams and hidden realities of our strange, anxious age.

Collaborating with Del Naja and Curtis are a visionary team of artists and designers that also includes the innovative art and design practice United Visual Artists (whose commissions for venues such as Tate Modern and the Victoria and Albert Museum intersect sculpture, architecture, live performance, and digital installation). This groundbreaking production includes performances by Massive Attack and places the audience at the center of arresting stories of politics and power over the past 30 years.
