Go Figure Out Yourself

World Première March 22nd 2018 . Les 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!

 

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.
