Teetering on the brink of cult status whilst on the verge of a nervous breakdown Yana Alana is the divine and deluded alter ego of Sarah Ward, one of Australia’s fastest rising cabaret stars. Yana Alana’s latest show Between The Cracks earned her the 2014 Helpmann Award for Best Cabaret Performer and two Green Room Awards for Best Production and Best Cabaret Artiste. Along with her talented all female band Tha Paranas, Yana Alana has three cabaret shows ‘Bite Me’ and ‘In Concert’ both with 8 Green Room Awards and a live art show ‘Tears Before Bedtime’. Yana Alana and Tha Paranas is cabaret at its very best – incisive, hilarious, confronting, revealing and, most of all, musically divine.
