Presentation

Within a universe in constant mutation, five individuals shine. Mixing the language of circus and the movement of dance, they use lifts and aerial acrobatics to accompany the slow metamorphosis of the environment that they are an integral part of. At times body-objects and at times body-actors, they confront the organic matter, support it, evade it, collide with it, or melt into it... Like fractals, nothing here has a beginning or an end, but is instead part of a continuum. By embracing this constantly renewed space, the bodies perform hypnotic and unpredictable movements, always punctuated by a disturbing eeriness and fleeting moments of beauty.

"With Fractales, Fanny Soriano has composed a jewel of a score for five performers.”

– Midi Libre

The Libertivore circus company was founded in 2005 by Fanny Soriano and Jules Beckman. Together, they created the show Libertivore. After, Fanny Soriano took the company's reins alone and developed shows that mixed circus and dance and were enriched with research into organic matter and the material, malleable, and metamorphic character of the body. She created Ether in 2012 and then a triptych dedicated to nature composed of Hêtre (2015), Phasmes (2017), and Fractales (2019).
