In partnership with the Park Avenue Armory, the British Council was proud to support the US debut of Massive Attack V. Adam Curtis after its premiere at the Manchester International Festival
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 breath-taking moments of illusion in a hallucinatory ride through the dreams and hidden realities of our strange, anxious age. The piece ran at Park Avenue Armory, New York from September 28 to October 4, 2013.
