Yana Alana and The Paranas offer a celebration of difference in a world obsessed with bland cookie-cutter celebrity.
‘I’m Not A Role Model. I’m A Model With Rolls’ Yana Alana
The alter ego of Sarah Ward, Yana is a self-obsessed, tragic and heroic femme-drag clown, a champion for the disenfranchised with a voice scaling from a Bassey-sized belt to an operatic soprano.
Born in Melbourne’s queer and alternative clubs Yana has become a Helpmann Award-winning Australian Cabaret Icon. Alongside her all-female band The Paranas (Bec Matthews MD/drummer and Louise Goh pianist) and Director Anni Davey they have 11 Green Room Awards (Melbourne’s Premiere Arts Awards).
