Atlanticx is a newly formed ONG that spins-off from a program dedicated to new opera created by Fundación Williams with more than 60 artists-scholars sponsored through educational and creative initiatives. Based in Buenos Aires, Atlanticx offers a two-year program with workshops, residencies, and exchange opportunities for early-career composers, directors, and innovative transdisciplinary artists. The organization also produces the Festival Nueva Opera Buenos Aires, which will take place in October.
For this edition of the Winter School, students worked via the internet with Suzanne Farrin and Fernando Fiszbein and are participating in meetings and classes during their time in New York.
Ensemble 2e2m, one of France's leading new music groups, with several hundred premieres to its credit since Paul Méfano founded it in 1972. Based in Paris since its creation, the ensemble produces concerts, educational projects, public rehearsals, and meetings with composers and performers as a way for audiences to discover works, experiment, and build a close connection with musical creators.
During this residency in New York, 2e2m will present three concerts with premieres by Atlanticx's participants and lead workshops for emerging artists.
