What do Berlin, Vienna, Paris, Budapest, Amsterdam and the picturesque Slovene village of Preddvor have in common? The FreeForms International Festival!
ABOUT FREEFORMS FESTIVAL
Free Forms is an artistic conversation between musucians, who use their virtuosity and openmindedness to facilitate a complex multi-dimensional reality. They use their performances to communicate with the public who cares about Human inner complexity. They meet at the crossroads of opinions where they don't go their separate ways but join on a single path. Their collaboration can serve as an example of how to build trust, cooperation and tolerance. Free Forms is a counterstrike against the current consumer monoculture.

EFSS - SOUND THERAPY IN NATURE
Gathering at the Alma Hotel terrace
Saturday morning will be spent in nature among fellow guests and performing artists. It will end with the presentation of vocally-therapeutic project »The Emotional Free Singing and Screaming - EFSS« under the guidance of Free Forms creator and supporter of the Limitationes movement, Udo Preis from Austria.
EFFS - emotional free singing and screaming - is similar to the unsystematic vocal communication between professional and amateur musicians (for example, five clarinet players playing simultaneously). It is based on the body-centered therapy by Wilhelm Reich. Reich originates from the mystical philosophical mentor and Greek-Armenian composer Georg Ivanovich Gurdjieff. His mediational philosophy and breathing technique knowledge stem from the realisation that breathing has a fundamental effect on the body, emotions, intellectual and spiritual capabilities of an individual. The purpose of EFSS therapy is to create distance from wild music and bring an individual back to the creative, emotional and thought process roots.
ABOUT THE DESTINATION
Free Forms Festival was formed in a once-famous natural climatic spa. The small Gorenjska village of Preddvor used to host over 35.000 tourists from all over Europe then disappeared off the tourist destination map practically overnight. After a several-decade hiatus, the village is now back on the list of nature-friendly tourist destinations with fresh air, positive energy and secret adventures.
Preddvor is located at the foot of Storžič mountain, the highest mountain of the western part of the Kamniško-Savinjske Alps. It is praised for its marvelous landscapes, natural drinking water in the mountain streams and walks through cultural and historical monuments. One of which is undoubtedly the Hrib castle with its lake and 100-year old sequoia park and fraxinus pathways. The event will also be held in the Hall of Hrib Castle.
Free Forms International Festival • Preddvor 2018 is the first event of its kind in this village, located about 10km away from the main airport, 25km away from the capital city of Ljubljana and 30km away from the Austrian border.
Welcome to the FREE FORMS Festival • PREDDVOR 2018!
