Tiffany Banton - Performing Artist

If you've ever heard anyone talk about an all round performer, they may well have been talking about Tiffany Banton!

 

Having developed a love of performing when barely out of preschool, Tiff has developed her skill across every facet of the performing arts. Her credits range from dance recitals, stage musicals and singing appearances to dramatic performances on the stage.

 

In her own words...

"I have performed on the Stage from the age of three, it's my passion! I was involved in Calisthenics for 10 years, as it was all that was available on Kangaroo Island. I was selected in the State teams as a junior and an intermediate which meant travelling to Adelaide every weekend for two years. I believe this sport has helped mould me into the person I am. From a young age it taught me, dedication, commitment, precision, the ability to work with a team plus of course confidence. I am known for my flexibility, dedication, motivation and quirky sense of humour."


"Originally a country girl, I was born on Kangaroo Island. I was very lucky to receive a three year scholarship from year 10 to 12 with Scotch College in Adelaide where I was a boarder enjoying subjects that once I could only have dream about. Studying all forms of Dance, Jazz, Modern, Ballet and Tap and was a member of the Choir and the Roulettes a singing group and Musical Theatre."

"Since leaving Kangaroo Island I have been able to pursue other forms of dance and musical theatre, Circobats a form of Circus and Acrobatics. I love acting, singing, and dancing. The dance forms I have learned are Ballet, Modern, Jazz and Tap. I also play Netball and Basketball and enjoy swimming, something that I also enjoy teaching in the school holidays."

 

Whether singing, dancing, acting or working on choreography, Tiffany's commitment to performing is absolute. She loves to challenge herself in new areas and even participated in the Auditions for Australian Idol in 2007-2008.

 

Tiffany demonstrated her dramatic talent in Grey at Noarlunga's Hopgood Theatre in 2010. Her outstanding performance in this extremely challenging production earned her special mention for her characterisation of the character 'Black'. For Tiff, the role was even more demanding as she was responsible for choreographing the part in addition to delivering an outstanding dramatic performance.

There is no doubt that audience members will return to the theatre in coming years to follow Tiffany's future dramatic outings.

 

Tiffany's high energy talent as a singer and dancer has seen her chosen for roles in a number of South Australian Stage productions, including All Shook Up and Lest We Forget.

From "Grey" Director Maria Davis...

"Tiffany's role of the black is a very physically demanding role because she appears on stage for about 95% of the show. The black is an interesting character or creature I should say, it can be likened to the wind or water or fire its purpose is to manipulate the dolls which live in the Grey realm. Charlotte finds herself in the Grey realm shortly after her father dies, while visiting this realm Charlotte meets the living versions of her childhood dolls, wind up doll Portia, string puppet Touro and jack in a box clown Daylon. Charlotte can not see the black but can see the black smears on hers and her dolls clothing, these black marks appear whenever a character is deeply affected by their own emotions, this element of the show gives Tiffany a great opportunity to dance and move in black paint adding an abstract and interesting medium to create with."

"I needed for this role not just someone who could move really well but also someone who could work alongside myself and the cast members in a very creative way, I'm the kind of director that strongly believes in co collaboration with my performing artists."

"Tiffany is a very talented dancer and choreographer, her ability to work extremely well with the cast makes my job a lot easier. Her personality brings a fantastic mix to the character of Black, she has approached this role fearlessly and worked independently as well as collectively to bring this most interesting character to life."
