Benjamin WeinerCore Apprentices 2011
Benjamin Weiner is a recent graduate of Columbia, where he majored in drama. He started out creating sound designs and music for productions at Columbia and Barnard; some favorites were Julius Caesar and Sarah Ruhl's Eurydice. Then, under the guidance of Ellen McLaughlin and Sylvan Oswald, he developed his sound experience into his thesis, Wave Point. This play, which he will develop further this year with the Core Apprentice program, explores issues of hearing, deafness, and alienation. He is also writing a musical, Pants, which enjoyed a workshop and reading at Columbia this past spring. Benjamin has worked at the Jim Henson Company and Chicago City Limits Improv, and is now creating bizarre sounds for Dan Dietz's Afraid of the Dark, opening at the Little Shubert Theatre this fall.
