Speculation by Leslie Ting

Hosted by Theatre Passe Muraille

In Speculation, Leslie Ting, a former optometrist and now a professional violinist, presents a digital re-imagining of this theatrical concert, taking the audience through witnessing her mother’s loss of vision, and eventual passing. Created through projections and music from both Beethoven & John Cage, this new online experience features experimental film and a collective performance of Cage’s 4’33”.

Audiences will be sent a link to the show closer to the event. This is a Theatre Passe Muraille and Leslie Ting Digital Co-Production in partnership with NUMUS. The show is created, performed, produced, directed and written by Leslie Ting; co-director, voice coach, access consultant Alex Bulmer; and co-director Tristan Whiston.
