The virtual platform FAST DA, launched by Gropius Bau in Berlin, is an attempt to share dance as a movement inside and outside the body, and follows the vision that dance can bring about changes in our society. The event will be divided into three parts - the first will introduce participants to the work of the collective, followed by individual exploration tours, followed by a final discussion based on a common thematic in-depth study and simple movement exercises. No knowledge of dance is needed.
