LENOX — Shakespeare & Company’s Center for Actor Training presents Tuning Your Instrument, a two-day workshop focused on voice and movement practices on Thursday, April 18, and Friday, April 19 at its Lenox, Mass. campus.

Led by Shakespeare & Company’s Director of Training Sheila Bandyopadhyay and Faculty Member Ariel BockTuning Your Instrument is open to artists at all experience levels and offers a focused exploration of Linklater Voice and Pure Movement practices to improve vocal and physical expression. 

The workshop is designed for anyone interested in performance-based voice and bodywork, and can also serve as a complement to the 2024 Lenox Weekend Intensive, held April 19 through 21. 

“An actor’s instrument is their body, voice, and imagination,” said Bandopadhyay, “and that instrument needs to be flexible, open, and responsive – this workshop is a way to develop practices that do just that.”

Tuning Your Instrument will be held from 10:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. each day; tuition is $200 USD. Discounted tuition of $150 will be offered to participants also registered for the Lenox Weekend Intensive.

It is through these programs that the aesthetic is continually investigated, redefined, and reinvigorated, and that welcomes actors, directors, writers, and teachers from all over the world to work with the Company’s faculty. Through the Center for Actor Training, Shakespeare & Company’s performance artists, education artists, and artist managers develop a common artistic vocabulary and a coherent approach to performing Shakespeare.

An illustration depicts a young female high school student standing at the threshold of a half-open medieval dungeon cell door. She gazes into a corridor that stretches into a bright light. The corridor floor is creatively transformed into a colorful day planner, full of playful notations, emoji-style doodles, and vibrant shades, symbolizing organization and time management. The walls blend the stone of a dungeon with a school-like setting, adorned with cheerful posters and doodles, merging academic and fantastical themes. Above the door, an ornate clock hangs, its time pointing towards a future. The light at the end of the corridor suggests hope and the promise of a well-managed, brighter path ahead.
