We address these questions...

Do you wonder how and why Deaf signers look fluent? What makes hearing signers look hearing? What makes native signers so expressive and clear? What makes some ASL masters so good at being concise yet still being informative? How can a signer use classifiers more efficiently and precisely?

Through a series of 2 hour workshops ultimately to release ourselves from wordiness... 

Unlearning Words is a workshop series aimed to benefit anybody who wish to improve their expressive ASL style and informational conveying to a radical level. An interplay between lecture and interactive dialogue, this workshop aims to convey some deliberation on the topic of sign language expression, exploring the origins of words, their purpose and the effect they have on the processes of signing.

We hope to use this workshop as a spring board for interpreters and signers to unlock their true signing potential. With the right guidance and thinking, all people can discover ASL’s inherent efficiency and emotional fluency.

Why the workshop?

This workshop series was born out of Seth's desire to show people what sign language truly is. 

 

This desire arose from having worked with sign language in many settings, professional and casual...

  • ASL Coaching for movie sets & scripts

  • Supporting several Broadway interpreted shows

  • Acting

  • Teaching students

  • performing ASL onstage

  • befriended interpreters over dinners
    and happy hours...

Working with signers of all levels and skills, he saw there was a common insight that only master signers had. This insight made signing effortless and natural. Offering this workshop is his way to share such insight to you.
