Auditions are organized so that the director/choreographer can find the performers for a project. The type of work to be carried out will determine the type of audition. For collaborative creation, the audition is aimed at getting to know what the performers can contribute in terms of their technical and interpersonal skills and what their world of references is. In contrast, if the performers are to do something predetermined, the audition has a narrower focus and is aimed at finding out how the performer would fit the part. I think about this a lot in the context of couple relationships. Some people know what kind of relationship they want and they look for somebody that can fulfil this. Other people prefer to get to know someone without a specific goal in mind. If they like this person, they find out what emerges from the interaction and see where this “collaboration” leads to.
