What Brings You In
Produced by Leslie Ting Productions
Presented as part of Why Not Theatre’s RISER Toronto
A violinist confronts the noise of her psyche in an electroacoustic soundscape. A percussionist sifts through her subconscious in a sandbox. WHAT BRINGS YOU IN, an interactive digital performance, is a music-driven project that explores the many ways we engage with the therapeutic process.

Essential Information:

The show runs approximately 65 minutes. Even though the show is online, it is live. If you arrive late, the performance will have started already (but you can still join!). Headphones or earbuds are ideal for this audio experience. You will hear everything you need to without them, but we have created a spatialized listening experience by using binaural audio which you will only hear with headphones or earbuds. For a smooth experience, please use: A recent laptop or phone with Chrome, Safari, or Firefox (not Internet Explorer), and a stable internet connection. If you encounter any technical issues during the show, simply refresh the page. You can do this at any time and you will be able to rejoin the show.
