Assuage

Assuage (2018)

The word assuage means to make something that is burdensome and painful less severe. Assuage was created as a dramatic duet in which the couple attempts to connect and resolve the physical and emotional obstacles of their relationship. The music drives the movement into a frenetic ending that allows for multiple conclusions. The irony of this work is that its title is never achieved.
