Om Master Class

By popular demand we have invited the american actor and acting coach Kirk Baltz back to Oslo to hold a four day masterclass. This exclusive session is for professional actors who are looking for a tune up.

There is no actor I know with more artistic integrity, love of the craft, and just plain know-how than Kirk Baltz.
– Philip Seymour Hoffman

Kirk Baltz’s teaching is Method and Meisner-based, using repetition, movement, sensory work, improvisation, writing, script analysis and varying exercises. The masterclasses are taught in a warm, truthful, humoristic and direct manner. Kirk encourages artists to fully be who they are while realizing their full potential. Kirk’s work can also help participants with practicing the differences between acting on stage, on camera and in a casting office.


  • Strengthen your acting technique while working in a safe, forthcoming and inspiring environment.
  • Make strong choices, which aid in the delivery of a performance that is truthful and alive.
  • Keep your work fresh and consistent.
  • Be able to overcome personal blockages while achieving your full potential.


  • One-on-one coaching (in a classroom setting) to help fine-tune your work.
  • Going through the process of working on monologues and scenes while releasing emotion with freedom and clarity.
  • Greater confidence in how you approach and experience your work as an artist.

As an acting teacher, Kirk Baltz works with actors, writers and directors all over the world helping them gain a better understanding of strong acting techniques and staying authentic in the work, thus gaining a more striking presence on stage and on film. This masterclass is rooted in taking risks in a safe and supportive environment.

You will be working with Sam Shepard’s plays “Buried Child” and “Curse of The Starving Class.” Both plays are to be read and studied, printed on paper and brought to class.

Members of Norsk Skuespillerforbund pay a reduced participant fee.
