ULTIMA VEZ (BE)
In Go Figure Out Yourself, an encounter with the audience in an unprepared space, five characters take you far beyond the protective walls of the theatre and they show you a place where you can give shape to your own thoughts, simply by looking and listening to others. At the rhythm of a soundtrack that mixes words, music and dance, you are invited to participate in an unpredictable and exciting trail.
Go Figure Out Yourself explores the boundaries between audience and performers.
Simply moving freely in the space, you will become part of a group happening, which will leave you in the end with many questions and few answers. The slowness of everything contrasts with the speed of the individual. The whole is greater than the sum of its parts. Everything is what it is.

Physicality, passion and intuition are the main elements of Wim Vandekeybus’ work, one of the greatest exponents of the international performance scene. A multifaceted artist, choreographer, director, performer who attended the University of Leuven where he studied psychology. Fascinated by the relationship between mind and body, this interest influenced all his choreographic work.
In 1987 he founded the Ultima Vez company with which he made almost 30 productions as well as numerous films and videos. The use of different media and languages translates into a constantly evolving cast that includes dancers, circus performers, actors, musicians and collaborations with artists from different disciplines.
