An original work by Gary DiBenedetto, with director Tom Mazur, choreographer Stephanie Beauchamp, and theater/technical adviser, William Ward.
. “Exploitation” is a play featuring actors, dancers, kinetic sculptures and electroacoustic composition representing the early Industrial Revolution and its relationship with the present.
During the past 15 years Gary DiBenedetto created over 30 Interdisciplinary Performance, Multimedia Installations and Video Works exhibited and performed in over 40 local, national and international venues. During the same period, he composed 12 compositions with over 100 performances and radio broadcasts. His electroacoustic music, derived from environmental and industrial sound sources, is heavily influenced by Arnold Schoenberg and Karlheinz Stockhausen. Most of his multimedia installations consist of kinetic sound generating sculptures that reconfigure antique tools. In 2006 he won the overall prize in KAO International Kinetic Art Competition.
DiBenedetto is the recipient of both a New Jersey State Council on the Arts Composition Fellowship in 2002 and a Crafts Fellowship in 2015. He received his MA in Performance and Composition from New York University.
Funds for this performance have been provided by the the NJ State Council on the Arts
and the Puffin Foundation.
