Brushstroke (12.44MB).jpg


a multi-disciplinary performance by Leslie Ting


While her mother slowly loses her vision, optometrist Leslie Ting makes a career change to pursue her dream of becoming a professional musician. After her mother dies suddenly, Leslie, now a violinist, listens to the silence to discover what she never saw before. 


Speculation is a theatrical concert weaving a monologue and projections  with performances of Beethoven and John Cage to tell a mother-daughter story about loss and listening. 



...very moving and very intelligent....the most worthwhile artistic performance (or artistic anything) I’ve attended in the past five years.
— Karen Vogel, writer
It was mesmerizing for me...the story of mothers and daughters, told in such a beautiful way.
— Sasha Gruetzmacher-Elnwechter, Region of Waterloo Arts Fund
