For the 2015/2016, 2016/2017 and 2017/2018 seasons, Compagnie Libertivore / Fanny Soriano benefits from the support of the Merlan, the national scene of Marseille as part of its La Ruche program, a support unit for emerging companies in the region SUD Provence Alpes-Côte d’Azur.
Since September 2018 and for 3 seasons, Fanny Soriano will be associate artist at theaters in Dracénie subsidized theater since childhood and for dance, Draguignan.
Created in 2005 by Fanny Soriano (dancer, aerialist) and Jules Beckman (musician, multidisciplinary performer), Libertivore makes multidisciplinary performance works marked by a commitment to both physical and emotional risk. The company bases its research on improvisation and favours poetics inspired by both real and imagined worlds, by Nature as well as contemporary human society. Inspired by the words of Gaston Bachelard, "Everything becomes alive when the contradictions accumulate." the company works with both untangling and concocting lively contradictions. After creating their first show, eponymously titled Libertivore (Jeune Talents Cirque award, 2007), they participated in creating the show Autochtone (2009 – 2012) by Collectif AOC/Karin Vyncke.
In 2013, while creating the solo Hêtre, health problems forced Fanny to stop her aerial work. In 2014, she decided to devote herself to directing, and began searching for the right acrobat to replace herself in her signature solo. In 2015, she handed over performance duties of Hêtre to Kamma Rosenbeck. 2015 also saw the start of her work on Phasmes, a piece for two acrobatic dancers, that is a continuation of Hêtre. These two short forms can be played in diptych or independently. Phasmes premiered in February, 2017, to enthusiastic acclaim by audiences and professionals alike, at the Théâtre du Merlan (the National Theatre, in Marseille, France) as part of the International Biennale of Circus Arts.
For the 2015/16 through 2017/18 seasons, Libertivore – Fanny Soriano is supported by Le Théâtre du Merlan (the National Theatre, in Marseille, France) as part of its program La Ruche, a support cell for emerging companies in Provence-Alpes-Côte d’Azur region.
For his part, Jules Beckman is a performer in several plays by Jan Lauwers & Needcompany. Between various Needcompany creations and tour dates, he works on his next solo project, Pleasure Test, a Libertivore production.
