Following it's premiere at MIF13, Manchester International Festival took Massive Attack v Adam Curtis to Germany and New York.

CREATED BY Robert Del Naja AND Adam Curtis
DESIGNED AND STAGED BY Robert Del Naja AND UVA
IN COLLABORATION WITH Es Devlin

The marriage of the two… is inspired… It’s a Requiem Mass of sorts. This is a truly pan-sensory and exhausting experience.
THE FINANCIAL TIMES

Adam Curtis’s film drew together threads connecting Russian punk, Jane Fonda in full aerobic flight and the legacy of pop art to illuminate the rise of the managed state; Massive Attack’s live performance provided the emotional weight. Surrounded by screens, audiences of 2000 a night discovered that buried optimism + bone-shaking bass = an awesome intellectual and visceral experience.

Housed in Mayfield Depot, a railway station unused since 1986.

Commissioned by Manchester International Festival,
Ruhrtriennale International Festival of the Arts and Park Avenue Armory.

In partnership with the BBC.

Ruhrtriennale, ESSEN, GERMANY
