Tankiso Mamabolo is a passionate singer, actress and dancer from Mthatha in the Eastern Cape.

She graduated from the University of Cape Town in 2015 with a BA (Hons) in Theatre and Performance.

Tankiso’s journey began in 2011 when she won the Arts and Culture trust performing Arts scholarship. Since then, she has embarked on many artistic journeys including ‘BlackDog’/ Inj’emnyama’ performance at The Baxter Theatre, directed by Clare Stopford and Titus Andronicus directed by Geoffrey Hyland.

In 2013 she also performed alongside Gloria Bosman and Kate Normington at the annual Arts and Culture awards and a year later performed in a musical cabaret alongside ‘District Six’s’ Cleo Raatus at the Voor Kamer Vees.
