James “Jimmy” McGinn, a former student of Eugene Lang College (2008) and a contemporary performer and choreographer, was part of the performance of ‘Rules of the Game’ this November (10-12) at the BAM Howard Gilman Opera House. Throughout his professional training, Jimmy has developed a database of referential form and gestural symbolism as he became more invested in trans-post humanistic theory.
