Shakespeare An exploration of the importance of language within the plays through the work of the voice coach Andrew Wade: "How we find a way for language to go through us is the real challenge," he says. Partners switch places, and later Wade instructs, "Hands on partner's ribs. Count slowly as they exhale . . . Seated people, open your mouth and sigh out. Feel your ribs in your partner's hands like a corset. Stick your tongue out like a gargoyle: Breathe in, out. Are you more conscious?" A few heads nod affirmatively. "Now count to 10 in a whisper." The sound is like wind rustling trees. "Lean back into your partner's hands, they'll support you. Explore your own resonance."
