„We must stop before we start“…Such a great way to begin our work as Actors. Finding that Still Point within where all the mind chatter settles. Physical tension softens…we become grounded and more able to speak out our Truth.
In this workshop at The Performing Arts Studio in Munich we will find our centers…reside in and create from a place of stillness and conviction.
Exercises will include: Movement, relaxation, Meisner repetition, sensory work and character development.
The workshop is open to all levels of actors. All are encouraged to attend all 4 days at the discounted course fee. Those who are new to working with Kirk must attend the first 2 days to help with acclimation. If you’ve worked with Kirk in the past you may request permission to attend the second two days (Open Level) …but please know the work is accumulative and more will be gained from the full course.
Here’s to an inspiring and productive 4 days…looking forward to being with you all in October!

Dozent: Kirk Baltz
I have chosen the play we will be working with for our next session. "A Brief History of Helen of Troy" by Mark Shultz.
It's a rough play but leads to a deeply moving and poignant conclusion. I am very excited about doing gender and age switches throughout and the places it will take the class to as a whole and ALL of us individually. Give it a good read... Mark Shultz is a truly remarkable playwright. However: No prepation needed! You will just need to read it once and bring a printed paper copy to first morning of class. No electronic devices please.
Dress comfortably. Bring lunch, notebook, pen, water bottle, a yoga mat and/or blanket . We will be doing a fair amount of floor work.

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!
