Ing an Die (2017)

Ing an Die serves as James McGinn’s operatic debut, concluding a three year research period exploring the multifaceted nature of a Gesamtkunstwerk. Placing this notion within a post-contemporary context, Ing an Die juxtaposes a broad palate of symbolic images and performative identities. By engaging the traditional vs contemporary, masculine vs feminine, organic human vs synthetic humanoid; the value systems surrounding art, culture, and power are used to critically examine humanist privilege within our contemporary world.

At the brink of a decaying humanity crushed by the exponential growth of technology, this 3-Act, 75 minute operatic-dance duet, traces a shape-shifting love story amidst a pre-apocalyptic landscape.
