open audition for HIT’s 2021 season

Open Auditions NEW DATES

HIT is producing several exciting projects over the next 6 months and we are looking to meet new collaborators from all levels of the industry. If you are a professional actor, newly graduated or are otherwise experienced as a performer, then we are interested in meeting you.
As we are collaborating this season with Bøssehuset and World Pride to provide a season of LGBTQ+ theatre, we have a special but not exclusive focus this particular season on actors who self-identify as LGBTQ+, especially non-binary or alternatively gendered.

Auditions are inclusive and open to all actors.
NEW Audition dates:  23rd and 24th of January 2021

INTERNATIONAL ISOLATION MONOLOGUES 2020/21

HAVEN’T YOU WATCHED YET??

Tune in for our brand new, exciting, ongoing writing experiment!

Under HIT, six international playwrights are now being brought together online to  collaborate from their homes in the UK, Denmark, France, Portugal, Sweden and Greece –  to  creatively share their isolation experiences online during Covid year 2020.
The result is six brand new filmed monologues in English, which audiences are able to watch being read aloud,  as they are released and featured here on our HIT website and online. 

Your own story, in the words of another,  in the mouth of the protagonist.

Watch as each partner playwright becomes performer, reading aloud the monologue especially written for them, based on their own story, written by their online, writing partner.
John Foster (UK) pairing with Joan Rang (DK)
Miguel Pelleterat (FR) pairing with Ero Glaros (EL)
Stephen Rappaport (SE) pairing with Ricardo Correia (PT)

Writers from 6 countries – strangers to each other, listening to each other’s stories, writing eachother’s stories – separated by distance, united in isolation.

The HITting Home –  International Isolation Monologues project is graciously being supported by Louis-Hansen Fund.

HIT’s LGBTQ+ Season

After a fantastic extended run this November of the compelling 1-man plays Harry Clarke and The Shy Manifesto, both pieces have gained critical acclaim and 5 stars for HIT’s actors and directors.
Both these powerful and revealing monologues are a tour de force for any actor. For HIT they are being performed in rep, also as part of HIT’s season focusing this year on LGBTQ+ oriented plays, leading up to HIT’s participation with dramatic works on stage during Worldpride 2021, which in August 2021 will be held in Copenhagen.

Stay tuned for more!
