After the success of 5 Soldiers in May 2016, Rosie Kay is back at Macrobert Arts Centre with a high energy, supercharged mash-up of thrilling dance, music and imagery.

After training with the army and delving into tribal rituals, MK ULTRA now investigates the secret society believed to be brainwashing pop culture today - hidden symbols, occult messages, satanic images and hyper-sexualisation. Ideas that are packaged as mainstream and sold across the globe. 

Kay delves deeply into this seductive world and conjures up something entirely new. You might believe in all of it, in some of it, or you might be trying to live your life, ignoring it. The problem is though, once you know about it, you just can’t ignore it.

“A super-saturated sensory feast of movement, sound and imagery.” – The Financial Times
“MK Ultra asks important questions about the real and the fake, and whether, for a new generation, they’ve become one.”  The Observer 
“An exceptionally stylish production.” – The Guardian
“They are fierce movers, performing their routines and rituals dressed in catsuits covered with mystical imagery, like a rave version of the Masons.” – Evening Standard
“A supremely slick, glossy and confrontational piece of work that combines exciting dance with fascinating ideas” – British Theatre Guide
“Rosie Kay never shies away from delving into complex and often challenging subjects, MK ULTRA is no different… The dancers were themselves a work of art, dressed in amazingly stunning body suits covered in symbols and designs… After watching MK ULTRA, it definitely leaves the audience asking the question is there somebody controlling the way we live our lives?” – StageTalk
