Channel 4 teams up with MonologueSlam UK!

We’re very excited to announce that Channel 4 are now officially supporting MonologueSlam UK! Recognising that traditional routes into the industry are becoming more expensive and less accessible, Channel 4 are teaming up with us to find new acting talent across the country.

Please see the press release below for full details!

CHANNEL 4 TO PARTNER WITH TRIFORCE CREATIVE NETWORK TO SUPPORT DIVERSE TALENT

More than 20 actors will have the opportunity to showcase their talents and potentially make their big break into acting

Thursday 27 October 2016: Channel 4 is partnering with TriForce Creative Network’s  MonologueSlam UK to support new acting talent from all backgrounds.

The MonologueSlam UK showcase gives actors across the country the chance to perform in front of a panel of industry judges, including the Channel 4 Drama Commissioning Team.  The most promising talent will be invited to the national final on December 12th where Channel 4 will select the top 10 and explore ways to champion their careers with Channel 4 Drama.

Fraser Ayres, co-founder, TriForce Creative Network, says; “We believe that all talent should be nurtured regardless of a performer’s background or circumstance.  MonologueSlam uncovers the freshest untapped talent, and we’re delighted that Channel 4 is on board to make 2016 our biggest year yet.”

Ramy El-Bergamy, Channel 4 On Screen Diversity Executive, says;  “Increasing diversity both on screen and off is hugely important to Channel 4 – we’re excited to be partnering with TriForce Creative Network on their MonologueSlam UK programme to tackle the issue of on screen diversity head on. The beauty of MonologueSlam UK is that gender, race, colour, sexuality and social background don’t come into it, it’s purely down to talent and it gives us direct access to a hugely diverse pool of talent.”

MonologueSlam UK is a nationwide, professional actors’ showcase culminating in a national final in December at Theatre Royal Stratford East. It is the only showcase supported by Spotlight and Equity, and is open to all. After a rigorous audition process for each show, 22 actors are given the opportunity to perform in front of a select audience including the industry panel.

The overall winner of each regional heat throughout the year then goes on to perform at the national final in December, where the champion is crowned. TriForce has produced a hugely accessible event for all performers, with an ethos of inclusion.

Previous talent uncovered by the event includes Chizzy Akudolu who went on to star in Holby City as well as Sorry, I Didn’t Know, the comedy panel show produced by TriForce Productions which takes viewers on a tour of black history across the globe.

Channel 4’s support also allows TriForce to offer travel expenses for performers taking part in the national final for the first time.

I found the Masterclass a great way to refresh my skills after having had a break from acting. Gary Pillai created a non competitive and relaxed atmosphere allowing us to show our true selves.

I adore all that TriForce are, do and represent. I feel exceptionally lucky for all that you've given me. I'm in a great place, with a new agent - Gordon and French - and my second TV job ahead. I honestly wouldn't be in this place without the support and opportunities given to me through The Actors Gym with the fabulous Babou, MonologueSlams and ongoing advice and guidance from the entireTriForce team. THANK YOU!
