Acting Intensive m. Kirk Baltz (L.A.)
Mo, 24. Feb 2020 - Do, 27. Feb 2020| incl. video shooting!
In this 4 Days workshop we will – prepare and shoot an individual Monolouge for you to take home – as well as work on a scene – and everyone will end up with a great piece of work showing what your empowered Actor is truly capable of.
The workshop is open to all levels of actors. Exercises will include: Movement, relaxation, Meisner repetition, sensory work and character development.
All will choose a monologue from a play, tv show or film you’d like to work on. Maybe something you’ve written….or even a piece from a book you’re drawn to. We will then shoot your 60-90 second monologue individually for at the end of our final day, for you to add to a demo reel or help create a new one. All will have their video file 7-10 day after the workshop.
We will also be working with an early and well known play of John Patrick Shanley’s entitled „Danny and the Deep Blue Sea„…give it a thorough read in it’s entirety and bring a printed copy to class.
Listen Fully…Let Go Completely…Respond Truthfully
Dress comfortably, bring lunch, water, notebook and a pen and…along with an open mind.
All will end up with a great piece of work showing what your empowered Actor is truly capable of.

About Kirk Baltz (L.A.)
With Kirk it isn’t all talk and theory…we are encouraged to do it…to think less and do more. That’s what I wanted. Something concrete, something that I can take home and work on. I can use in my trailer on set between takes and between scenes. Kirk Baltz has opened up new avenues for me and I am so very thankful!

- In welcher Sprache wird gearbeitet bzw. muss ich Englisch wirklich perfekt können?
I do encourage folks to work in their mother tongue. There’s more of an internal connection that takes place and then the works can be taken to English if desired. I’m more interested in artists grabbing the essence of the work rather than being concerned with the linguistics. I don’t need to understand what’s being said. I’m looking for truth and conviction.
- Wird zusätzliche Arbeit zu Hause erwartet?
There might be minimal work on lunch breaks and to do at home in the evening. Simple review of scenes and perhaps a bit of writing…nothing arduous. Evenings are for resting and dreaming 🙂
