What Happens at the NOA Audition?
This is a mutual audition where you get to know your potential NOA group and they get to know you. The more you show of yourself, the more can be revealed. Only after the audition you decide if it feels right for you to be there or not. So far, it has always magically shown itself. Therefore it is not an audition in the traditional sense. It is rather an opening up to the circle of people around you, to see if this circle shows the resonance in you that attracts you.
Please note: We recommend to have joined at least one of the open NOA workshops or a solo workshop with Jonathan Kay to sign up for the audition! If you did not have the chance to do that yet, but still want to apply, you are welcome too. Just make sure then to have time for an additional chat with Ana-Svenja (Admin) before. We will be in touch about this, as soon as you have signed up!
All of the participants for the audition will meet live on ZOOM. We ask that you bring with you an offer / idea / story / a tale from a recent holiday you have been on… something from your life. Be prepared to show something of what you want to give, from either your heart or head, or both. What have you taken from life? What have you given to life? What’s a comedy to you? What´s a tragedy for you? And what are these for the people in your life? Can you say all of this to yourself, and say it in front of others?
What is it that you want to really do? How do you want to achieve your desires? What are they? All of these reflections and discussions take place in a circle. You need to have courage to speak of yourself straight from the heart. To get up and speak with others. To dance, to speak out for yourself. To show willingness to participate with people and with life …When you are shy, what pulls you through the ups and downs of life? Who has lived / loved / is living? Who has lied / been a mask / feels inadequate? The work is about finding an understanding of what you’re compassionate about.
How are you going to show something of who you are and what it is you want? What are your dreams trying to fulfill, and where? At home? In a group? In the wider world? All of these things are there for and with you, and come with the potential to be brought to life. Who is it that you want to be that wants to acquaint with a Fool / the Fool, and wants to understand this dance and mundane plod called life? All of this takes place in a circle. Perhaps two circles. One circle inside the other.
There will be a good break for lunch, and then back to the meeting. Do you still want to stay? To formulate and ask your questions?
