IRCAM's multidisciplinary festival and academy, ManiFeste, the rendezvous for creation in Paris, places music in disciplines beyond the concert: theatre, dance, digital arts, visual arts. 120 young composers and performers from the world over take part in the academy every year. In 2017, the academy invites the composers Chaya Czernowin, Toshio Hosokawa, Alberto Posadas, Heinz Holliger, the choreographer Alessandro Sciarroni, the Quatuor Diotima, the soloists from the Ensemble intercontemporain (ensemble associated with the academy), and the Orchestre Philharmonique de Radio France.
The composers and performers taking part in the academy will benefit from being in a major artistic and technological setting as well as the presence of a large public audience for final performances. The academy also offers the possibility for participants—be they active students or auditors—to take part in a series of associated events free of charge. In addition to the composition workshops and master classes, participants also receive:Classes taught by guest composers, artists, and musicians
