"30 Deaf and hearing people put on a unique show, and things get dramatic — even for theatre"
New digital series Seen & Heard, streaming now on CBC Arts, follows the process of casting and staging this mixed English and American Sign Language (ASL) production "The Little Mermaid" by Seeing Voices Montreal. To make things more complex, many of the cast and crew have little or no theatre experience, and most of the Montreal actors use Langue de Signes Québécoise (LSQ) and don't know any ASL or English.
