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. 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. The piece examines the boundaries between audience and performers. 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. Everything is as it is.
Wim Vandekeybus is a Belgian choreographer and film-maker known for creating stage productions that bombard the senses with explosive physical energy and high-volume sound. He and his company Ultima Vez won international plaudits from the very start in 1986. Vandekeybus’ performances have an archetypal, mythical feel yet are very much of our time. Many pieces see a sexual and psychological tension and flirt dangerously with physical risk. Often they incorporate dance, live music (by the likes of David Byrne, David Eugene Edwards, Marc Ribot, Mauro Pawlowski), spoken texts and films.
