Aerial acrobatics at Free and Real
Since 2010 Free and Real have been based at N. Euboea, turning the continuous research of the basic fields of self-sufficiency (health, farming, nutrition, building & energy) into action. Free and Real are participating in the large family of the Greek Eco-network of producers, hand crafters and collectives, act as a medium for the free flow of information on various subjects, promote fair trade products and are part of the global eco-village network (GEN), cooperate selflessly with local groups and citizens encouraging free economy, while participations and visits have turned into joint ventures and travels outside the Greek border.
Aerial silk (also known as aerial contortion, aerial ribbons, aerial silks, aerial tissues, fabric, ribbon, or tissu, depending on personal preference) is a type of performance in which one or more artists perform aerial acrobatics while hanging from a fabric. Performers climb the suspended fabric without the use of safety lines, and rely only on their training and skill to ensure safety. They use the fabric to wrap, suspend, fall, swing, and spiral their bodies into and out of various positions. Aerial silks may be used to fly through the air, striking poses and figures while flying.
