MK ULTRA explores the the rise of a strange, dark myth of our time. How, as millions of young people turn away from the established political systems, they are embracing bizarre conspiracies that they see hidden like a secret code in the culture and music that surrounds them.
MK ULTRA mixes creator and choreographer Rosie Kay's thoroughly researched exploration of the rise of the Illuminati conspiracy in modern culture with filmmaker Adam Curtis' documentary elements to create a new kind of dance work.
MK ULTRA is visually arresting, with costumes from Lady Gaga’s 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.
For ages 14+
This event is followed by a post-show discussion with Rosie Kay and Adam Curtis.
