LANA’S PERFORMANCE STYLE
Lana is a firm believer in the ancient art of storytelling using voice, body and imagination. Original creation is key to this highly theatrical experience that encompasses the listener with important words, messages and emotionally charged skill. Her unique ritualized gesture patterns, honed story structure and life-changing messages will affirm you. Lana’s one-woman shows allow a glimpse into the old way where the teller becomes all of the characters as the story unfolds.
SCHOOL LIBRARY PRESENTATIONS /“The Best of Lana Series”
Lana loves intimate gatherings (under 200) to teach the power of story structure and the curriculum connection behind her inspiration. Simple, effective and always transformative, her mastery unravels in every image spoken as children participate creating their own vocal soundscape and gestures.

“THE OLD HOUSE” (School Tour December 2018)
FANTASTIC RESPONSE! THANKS EVERYBODY!!!
(Beautiful sketch by Chester Lees)
“In the silence of the snow stood a very old house. It was a two-story, wood-framed dwelling that had been home to many a family for well over one hundred years. She stood there empty, the last of her kind, in the snowy world of Christmas Eve and days gone by. What was that? A sound came from upstairs. Intruders! The Old House held her breath.”
Lana personifies an old house with her signature style. Flanked in rich captivating soundscapes from professional musician, Clayton Jeffrey, this finely tuned original tale will bring back the magic of the season with mysterious visitors, humour and surprise!
Live music, animated characters and powerful images!
