This mash-up of music and documentary film by BBC producer-director Adam Curtis and Robert Del Naja of Massive Attack promises “breathtaking moments of illusion in a hallucinatory ride through the dreams and hidden realities of our strange, anxious age” in its promotional material. Not sure what that means? Me, either. Added bonus: a performance by Massive Attack. And what better setting than the elegant mix of old and new that is Park Avenue Armory? Your ticket gets you a seat at the otherwise sold-out performance plus the chance to hit the dance floor and opine on what you’ve just seen with the help of an open bar and local eats, plus music by deejay Small Change. Bonus: Most of your ticket price is tax-deductible.
Park Avenue Armory, 643 Park Avenue, 212-933-5812, 8 p.m. (party at 9:45 p.m.), $250 ($190 for after-party only)
