MK ULTRA will blow your mind. Be dazzled by bright lights, superhuman dancing and pounding music. Enjoy the glamour of beautiful bodies and the glittering lifestyles of music videos. But what ugly secrets lie behind the media mask?

A thrilling show exploring the conspiracy of mind control hidden in plain sight, MK ULTRA is a dazzling collaboration between choreographer Rosie Kay and filmmaker Adam Curtis.

Taking its inspiration from the LSD-fuelled brainwashing experiments conducted by the US Military and CIA in the 1950s and 1960s, MK ULTRA explores the rise of a strange, dark myth. How, as millions of young people turn away from established political systems, they are embracing bizarre conspiracies hidden like a secret code in the culture and music that surrounds us.

Costumes from Lady Gaga designer Gary Card, a gold mirrored stage, hypnotic triangular projections by Louis Price, a pulsing soundtrack of American Trap music and a mesmerising score by electro-acoustic composer Annie Mahtani.

“a postmodern fantasia...MK ULTRA asks important questions about the real and the fake, and whether, for a new generation, they’ve become one.” The Observer (4 Stars)

“Extraordinary….a super-saturated sensory feast of movement, sound and imagery” The Financial Times (4 Stars)
