Go Figure Out Yourself

World Première March 22nd 2018 . Brigittines . Brussels

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!

 

Following the theatrical dance piece Mockumentary of a Contemporary Saviour (2017), Wim Vandekeybus is ready to break down the boundaries between the stage and the audience. A host and his entourage take the audience to the cabaret of questions, where Go Figure Out Yourself is the only answer that is currently possible. The tempo is high. Interaction is unavoidable. The performance is no longer for, but rather with the audience. And it’s this audience that shapes the landscape for this radical journey.

Go Figure Out Yourself is an all-embracing expedition balancing between various genres, from dance to theatre and circus. This time, Wim Vandekeybus wants to create a performance that is not an actual theatrical piece, or at least is not intended to be.
