During the fifties and sixties and immersed in the tension of the Cold War, the MK ultra mind control programs were born; a series of secret, illegal and sinister experiments developed by world powers for various purposes of war and domination.

In this context, and clearly burlesque, the play MK Ultra: Circus, Girls and Conspiracy was born, in which six women embody female icons of pop culture and ancestral archetypes enigmatically related to MK programs according to conspiracy theories.

Within a hypnotic reality of colors, darkness, music and enveloping movements that takes up the aesthetics of rock and roll, pin up and pop art of the 50's, an atmosphere of secrets, keys and eroticism is developed expressed through a high skill level. Dance, singing, contact, juggling, tightrope walking, skating, floor acrobatics, acrobatic poses, contortionism, balancing act and capillary suspension are the techniques that manage to catch the minds of the spectators.
