Application requirements

We are now accepting applications for the 2022-23 Professional Training Program!

A Statement of Purpose (Why Dell'Arte, and why now? To what end do you hope to apply your training? )
3 Letters of Recommendation

Video or In-Person Audition: One piece of new theatre. We want to see you move, breathe, speak, create, and be yourself. It should contain 2 contrasting monologues (one in heightened/poetic language if possible - they can be written by others if you wish), a song, and dynamic movement. The parts can be mixed together, shown in sequence - it's up to you. Don't think of it like a checklist; take it as a provocation to create and be free! Have fun.
Upload to vimeo or youtube and send the link. Please title the video with your name and "audition" - do not include Dell'Arte's name in the title.
Financial Plan: foreign nationals only - a simple statement outlining your plans for paying for the program and costs of living
