Free and Real is a community on the enormous island of Evia where they have an impressive set up with huge geodesic domes and yurts and a lot going on, seemingly, if you can make sense of the endless visionary blurb. In September, they’re holding an eco-fest. So plenty of capoeira, acro-yoga, acrobatics going on, as well as learning how to make those amazing geodesic domes.
