Between the Cracks
Melbourne’s very own Diva extraordinaire – the feather ruffler, the rabble rouser, the cabaret provocateur Yana Alana, takes to the stage for her first solo show (with two people in it).
Between the Cracks traverses the private places and deepest holes of this multi- award winning diva as she opens up and bares all in this bent night of blues, burlesque and blame.
After two years out of the public eye, time in rehab and lots of self-medicating, Yana Alana unapologetically returns to bare all in intimate night of camp cabaret.
“I’ve done a lot of work on myself over the past two years. I even went to a naturopath and discovered that I’m intolerant,” says Yana.
A mistress at emotional manipulation and the art of entrapment, Yana Alana invites you to view the world from the heart and mind of a solipsistic, fragile and courageous diva, who’s not afraid to let it all hang out.
Directed by Anni Davey, performed by Sarah Ward and Louise Goh.
‘Whether you’re a long term fan, or have never seen her perform, you’ll never regret seeing Yana Alana, upclose and rather personal. She is a pure force of nature (a blue one, of course), full of wit, a
delightful lack of self-dignity, and laugh-out-loud moments.’ Aussie Theatre review, February 2013
