Please see below for guidance on how to apply.
Applicants do not need to have trained professionally or had any experience to apply for Identity Acting Studio. All applicants are judged solely on their performance during the audition process.
In order to attend Identity Acting Studio you must:
- Be fluent in the English language
- Be 16+ when commencing at IDSA
Follow these three simple steps to apply:
Fill out the application form online and pay your application fee.
A member of the team will get back to you with the date and time of your audition and a short duologue scene for you to prepare.
Attend your audition, please aim to be 10 minutes early.
That’s all from you! We will be in touch within 7 – 10 working days with your audition results.
The audition will be split into two parts:
You will create improvised scenes and conversations under the guidance of the assessors. What we’re looking for here is your spontaneity, your ability to respond to cues and impulses, and your commitment to your imagined circumstances.
You will be split into pairs to work on the prepared duologue, which you will perform twice for the assessors. Following your first performance, you will be given notes which you should ensure you factor into your second performance. What we’re looking for here is your connection to the character’s circumstances, your ability to relate these to your own experiences and imagination, and your connection to the other actor.
You will be assessed on the following areas:
How connected are you to what the character is experiencing, how affected they are by what they have gone through, and what they’re trying to do?
How have you used the monologue as a stimulus for creativity? Have you internalised the text and made the words your own? Are you showing us your own unique quality as a performer?
Does it feel like you’re really talking to someone? Do you have a relationship with the person you’re talking to? What sort of relationship is it?
Can we hear you and understand you? Is your voice expressive, and does it show the emotion you’re feeling?
