 Intimate Moments is an interdisciplinary art project focusing on the creative process contained within cross-cultural exchanges.  Curated by Vanini Belarmino and Nelja Stump, it will bring to life a breathing exhibition and a series of performances in Berlin on 11-17 June 2013. It will feature artists from Singapore: Chow Chee Yong, Urich Lau, Sherman Ong, Elizabeth De Roza & Shelly Quick of Theatre Strays and Andree Weschler, Intimate Moments seeks to capture nuances from the two different cities through artistic confrontations and face-to-face encounter between the artists from Singapore and the community of creative minds and audiences in Berlin.

As part of the initial process of getting acquainted with the life in both cities, Intimate Moments will open the exhibition at the PLATOON KUNSTHALLE Factory presenting time-based works that will embrace active contributions and reactions from the city.  During the week, the audiences can expect to see intimate stories about Singapore through the installations, photography, film screenings, video and live performances. Presented by Belarmino&Partners in cooperation with Nomadics by Tristesse Deluxe and PLATOON KUNSTHALLE, this initiative is realised as part of the Asia-Pacific Weeks 2013. It received generous support from the Singapore International Foundation.

Intimate Moments for Vienna is a weekend of dance and film programme featuring works by Southeast Asian artists developed by Vanini Belarmino in response to the current exhibition of the Museum of Ethnology “Dance Creation. Asia’s Mythical Past and Living Present.“

The line-up presenting a combination of dance-film screenings by Sherman Ong and Masahiro Sugano alongside a solo performance by Unita Gaye Galiluyo aspire to highlight the current thinking and reflection of contemporary dance practice in Asia by Asian artists.  The attempts to bring into consciousness that dance in Asia is alive and has grown from within and beyond the confines of tradition.

Intimate Moments is a series of artistic encounters and cultural exchange initiative organised by Belarmino&Partners Singapore. It received generous support from the Singapore International Foundation.
