bind up my wounds

Duration: 5'30"

Program Notes:

"Bind Up My Wounds," for fixed media, is an adaption of a piece originally written for an interactive dance collaboration. The work is centered around a monologue taken from Shakespeare's "Richard III," in which the main character, King Richard, reflects on the various acts he has committed to achieve his throne. Using this text, the work attempts to create a narrative that examines the human conscience, and one's own awareness of it. The monologue is split into several sections, meant to depict both Richard's consciousness as well as the external pressures and commentaries that drive his actions.

Concert Premiere: May 8th, 2014, Iden B. Payne Theatre, Austin, TX.
