Due to popular demand, HIT is offering a series of intensives in March/ April 2020 on performance skill building, geared towards both experienced actors looking to work out their fundamentals, as well as for newer actors looking to be guided through a training process.

And now due to current social distancing circumstances,  HIT is really pleased to announce online programming for those looking to keep those creative juices flowing and to continue to grow as artists during this time!


Performing New Texts: Deep Dive Edition

Led by New York- and Copenhagen-based professional actor and director Jessica O’Hara-Baker, this class is about digging into script work, how to use the text to build a character by making informed choices, and how both actors and directors can approach prep and homework when they’re working on a show or film.
Mondays from 10:00-12:00
March 30, April 6, 13, + 20

Acting + Directing for the Camera

We’ll use the online class format as an opportunity for actors to slow down and dissect the process of what goes into a strong on-camera performance, while giving directors tools to learn more effective and efficient ways to communicate with performers.
Led by New York- and Copenhagen-based professional actor and director Jessica O’Hara-Baker.

Playwriting Workshop


This is a course about getting started and getting finished. Joseph Sherlock has been a teacher for 16 years and a theatre maker for longer. Through online lessons Joseph will show you techniques for tackling a blank page, for structuring and rewriting, for planning and freely composing. We’ll discus form and genre, classics and contemporary writers, the greats, the clichés and all the ‘rules,’ and then you can ignore them at your leisure. This isn’t a course to change your artistic voice, but to help you put that voice on paper, and to get it finished.
Normal classes will be on
Tuesdays from 18:00-21:00
March 31, April 7, 14, + 21
COVID Discount! 450kr
