William Goblirsch teaches acting and collaborative techniques at Virginia Tech. He is an actor who focuses on new work that utilizes the dynamic possibilities of the human body and voice, exemplified commonly in both clown and mask performance. Recently he taught Introduction to Theatre at the Community College of Baltimore County and Acting at the University of Iowa. 

Goblirsch has studied Meisner with the Black Box Acting Studio (Chicago), Clown with Dodi DiSanto (Washington DC), and was a recipient of the Obermann Center's fellowship on Engagement and the Academy. His research centers on the way masculinity is portrayed in contemporary performance and the methods in which new work can promote alternate definitions of masculinity.
