THE AUDITION

To apply for the CISPA 3 Year Professional Acting Course, having previous experience within theatre, film or TV is not compulsory. However, we look for distinct dramatic and artistic talent, and considering that the training is extremely demanding, the applicant is very wise prior to the audition to do some research about the specific kind of training offered at CISPA, and about acting in general.

Please note, that you must be 18 years (or older) at the start of the education, both physically and mentally robust, and that embarking on this kind of training requires a fair quantity of self insight and discipline.

For the audition we ask you to prepare a dramatic scene, a song in your mother tongue, and a physical/choreographic interpretation of a piece of music and its lyrics, according to the below guidelines.

All auditions will be held in situ at CISPA in Copenhagen, Denmark.

What do you need to prepare?

1. A dramatic scene lasting no more than 3 minutes

  • You can choose a text of any era, style or genre, and by any author, including self-written. At least half of the text should be in English, but if you want you’re welcome to present part of your scene in your mother tongue. This should be indicated in the text file attached to your application. 
  • The scene should be a monologue, and be thoroughly investigated and rehearsed in advance.
    The important thing is that the scene resonates with you personally in terms of the character, circumstances and themes.
  • We are more interested in your personal interpretation and courageous exposing of inner life than in a polished display of acting skills.
  • Please attach the monologue to your application form, clearly stating the author, and, if applicable, the name of the play/script, the Act/Scene, and the character’s name.

2. A song in your mother tongue

  • You can choose from a song of any era, style or genre, and by any musician, including self-written, as long as it is in your mother tongue.
  • The song should be performed a capella.
  • We are more interested in your personal interpretation and courageous exposing of inner life than in beautified singing. 
  • Avoid copying the singing style or mannerisms of any possible idols you may have.
