Highs & Lows is an evening of performances in OT301, Amsterdam. The night, produced and curated by 4bid, focuses on movement research in contemporary dance and live art. The idea behind H&L is to give contemporary dance, performance and live art a platform to show work that is experimental, daring, unfunded, collaborative, result of research or work in progress.

“Sculptures#2 – a product of human behaviour” by Ida Brottmann Hansen

The work referes to ancient greek sculptures, where beauty and the perfect body was in focus. Although they at that time worshiped the male body, the female beauty is our time the most desired- from both men an beauty. And female beauty does – for the most part – carry a higher value then the male.

“Breathe” (Video Screening; 18 mins) by Minhong Yu
Breathe – A dialogue in-between, a video installation, a new layer of meaning is provided by the space. It focuses on identity and dialogue as a medium between people, landscapes and cultures. I want to create an atmosphere for the audience to immerse into my work. The audience will create extra layers, make a new connection and form a new visual language. I make a poetic, philosophical and political statement between centralisation and decentralisation and opacity and transparency.
