Audition Content

IDSA Online Auditions are held on Zoom in small groups. The audition will be split into two parts:

Improvisation

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.

Performance

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.

 

Assessment

You will be assessed on the following areas:

Connection

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?

Ownership

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?

Presence

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?

Vocal clarity

Can we hear you and understand you? Is your voice expressive, and does it show the emotion you’re feeling?

 

IDSA Tier Levels

All IDSA Tier levels are broken down into five main categories. These include but are not limited to:

Foundation
Intermediate
Advanced
Semi-Professional
Professional
