Leslie Ting - Speculation

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

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 with an immersive visual design based on the experience of vision loss. A monologue interweaved with live performances of Beethoven and John Cage tells a mother-daughter story of loss and listening.
