Filmed in English, American Sign Language (ASL) and Langue des signes québécoise (LSQ), ‘Seen & Heard” follows the adventures of a troupe of Deaf and hearing actors and stage crew mounting a unique Deaf-themed version of “The Little Mermaid”. Many of the cast and crew have little or no theatre experience, and most of the Deaf actors use Langue de signes québécoise (LSQ) and don’t know American Sign Language (ASL) or English. But the biggest struggle happens in the wings of the theatre, where the norms and values of Deaf culture can clash with those of the hearing world. Will the players be able to unite for show time?
