MK ULTRA will blow your mind. Be dazzled by bright lights, superhuman dancing and pounding trap music as choreographer Rosie Kay and filmmaker Adam Curtis collaborate to create a bold commentary on the rise of conspiracy. 

You found out about the New World Order years ago, at school, on the internet, through friends. You see Illuminati symbolism in films, on posters, in music videos and in the behaviour of alleged puppets Miley Cyrus, Justin Bieber, Rhianna, Katy Perry, and Lady Gaga. This conspiracy theory goes way back to Michael Jackson and even the death of Whitney Houston, referencing Alice in Wonderland, The Wizard of Oz, the one-eyed sign and Roc-A-Fella triangle along the way.  

As millions of young people turn away from established political systems, MK ULTRA looks at conspiracy and myth within popular culture and ideas about who really is in control.  

Taking its inspiration from the CIA code for the real LSD-fuelled brainwashing experiments by the US Military, MK ULTRA shines a light on the Illuminati and temptations to cross to the dark side. 

Rosie Kay is one of the UK’s leading female choreographers. She is celebrated for her athletic movement, rigorous research and intelligent theatricality, and is known for the five-star award-winning 5 SOLDIERS as well as choreographing 2018’s live televised Commonwealth Games handover broadcast globally to 1 billion people.
