“Always be a first rate version of yourself and not a second rate version of someone else.”
– Judy Garland

Alana Elmer (she/ her) is a Toronto/Tkaranto-based multidisciplinary artist who has been working in the arts community of Turtle Island for decades. She is a curious soul who is constantly captivated by the power of framework and the music of the body.

Alana has been a full-time company member at Toronto Dance Theatre (TDT) for fifteen years. Her time at TDT has allowed her the lush experience of working with world-renowned artists from across the globe. It has given her performance opportunities in places such as France, London, New York, Spain, and it has earned her two Dora Mavor Awards and multiple nominations.

She began her television career as a host for well known shows such as Gamer Girlz and Daytime Toronto. More recently, she has been deemed a true “Scream Queen” winning multiple awards for her starring roles in horror films such as Kookie, Latched (TIFF Premiere 2018), and Making Monsters.

Since she was a child, she was told she had a memorable voice and has always felt a pull towards the world of VO, animating puppets and cartoons for commercials and tv shows.

Alana remains in constant examination of the lenses performers use to shape things, and how we engage with one another as we shape them.
