CISPA offers a 3 year acting training, providing fully qualified, professional actors for the Danish and international theatre, film and TV industry.
Every year, during spring and summer, we hold a number of auditions for the CISPA training.
The aim of the audition is to allow the apiring actor an opportunity to show his/her creative potential, what he/she individually desires to bring forth, and to enable the CISPA audtion panel in the best possible way to assess the readiness of each applicant for this particular kind of acting training.
Students are accepted on the basis of a thorough audition, in the form of an all-day workshop, which consists of a series of exercises within different disciplines, and an individual interview with the artistic directors of the school. The workshop is led by different of the CISPA teachers of acting technique, movement and song/voice training.
Furthermore we ask the applicant to prepare in advance a dramatic text of his/her own choice, lasting no more than 3 minutes.
Individual and group exercises alike are designed to expose each applicant’s ”raw” talent. At CISPA, we’re more interested in the applicant’s openness of mind, personal courage, and a genuine curiosity about the human condition than a display of polished acting skills.
Having previous experience within theatre, film or TV is not compulsory. However, we look for distinct dramatic talent, and considering that the training is extremely demanding, the applicant is very wise prior to the audition to do a bit of research about the specific kind of training offered at CISPA, and about acting in general.
Please note, that you must be both physically and mentally robust, and that embarking on this kind of training requires a fair quantity of self insight and discipline.
APPLICATION DEADLINE: 1 week before the particular audition date
PLEASE NOTE: APPLICATION IS NOT VALID UNTIL THE AUDITION FEE HAS BEEN PAID! After you have transferred the fee, please send us the receipt. Also note, that any transactions fees should be paid by the applicant.
We give you information about the content of the training. You can ask questions to a panel of teachers and students.
Both individually and together with other applicants you participate in a series of exercises, led by different CISPA teachers. Among other things, we work with your imagination, the use of your senses, intuitive openness, emotional adaptability, sense of language, improvisational skills, your ability to receive directions, physical expressivity, voice work and singing.
You present your rehearsed dramatic scene to the panel and with your proposal as the starting point we talk about the scene, and work further with it. All auditioneés watch each other’s work.
Each applicant have an informal interview with 1-2 of the main teachers.
