Tiffany Malthouse is a young Western Aranda woman, living in Mparntwe (Alice Springs) with family in Ntaria (Hermannsburg) whom she is passionate about. She says, “I really love performing. When I perform, I imagine no one is there and I pretend I’m famous.”
In 2011 Tiffany was involved in the Incite Arts production Close to Me at Araluen Arts Centre. She has been an active member of the stArts with D ensemble, having participated in all major stArts with D projects since its formation in 2013 through to 2021.
Tiffany, as part of Incite Arts’ Connect2Culture program, collaborated with fellow artist, Lizzie Trew, to creatively explore their connections to cultural heritage, language, stories, song and dance. The Move Masters initiative saw Tiffany mentored as a workshop leader and assistant director, as well as a performer, with artist and mentor, Lauren Jones.
Notably, Tiffany was the NT representative selected to attend the 2014 Arts Access Australia and Weave Movement Theatre intensive workshops with internationally renowned artist Caroline Bowditch.
When asked what her favourite things about performing are, Tiff said “When you meet someone new in the audience or when you’re doing a performance, they are there for you…It’s nerve-racking but when you look at someone and they’re looking at you, they will just be so happy to see you. That’s the most real thing I’ve learned from people.”
