Maybe it’s a cabaret of questions with no answers
Maybe it’s all about ‘you’
Maybe you should come alone
Maybe you’ll find your true love at the end
Maybe it’s a trip to the dark side
Maybe it’s theater’s very last funeral ritual
Maybe it’s a maze of mirrors
Maybe it’s not for you
Maybe you’ll cry
Maybe it’ll remind you that you were born naked
Maybe you should ‘fear not’
Maybe boredom is the enemy to fight
Maybe it’s all a lie and you’ll like that
Maybe it’s like another drug
Maybe it changes you with no way back
Maybe finally we are at your feet and you decide
Maybe you don’t even reach the end
Maybe it’s time to abandon yourself
Maybe others can’t describe it
Maybe you should just Go Figure Out Yourself

 

Go Figure Out Yourself is an encounter with the audience in an unprepared space. Five distinct characters take you far beyond the protective walls of the theatre. They show you a place where you can give shape to your own thoughts – simply by watching and listening to others.
Go Figure Out Yourself is an all-embracing expedition. To a driving soundtrack of words, music and dance, you are invited to surrender to an unpredictable and exciting trail. And to the power of the eye. From close up.

Go Figure Out Yourself examines the boundaries between audience and performers. By making simple moves freely in the space, you become part of a collective happening. Go Figure Out Yourself is a performance that leaves you with more questions than answers. The slowness of the many contrasts with the speed of the individual. The total is more than the sum of the parts.
Everything is as it is.

 

Physicality, passion, intuition are the main elements of the work of Wim Vandekeybus, one of the greatest exponents of the international performing arts scene. A versatile artist, choreographer, director, performer, he attended the University of Leuven where he studied psychology. His interest in the relationship between mind and body has influenced all his choreographic works.
In 1987 he founded the company Ultima Vez with which he created almost 30 productions as well as many films and videos. The use of different media and languages translates into ever-changing casts that include dancers, circus actors, actors, musicians and collaborations with artists of different disciplines.
