Originally from Denmark, Anana was born into the Arts. Her mother travels the world painting Oriental/Scandinavian inspired murals, and her father is a “Prix du Quebec” award winning Filmmaker.
Anana loved to dance from as far back as she can remember, and first came to Montreal to study at Les Grands Ballets Canadiens at the age of 12. Since then she trained as an actress and mask artist in both Europe and Canada and eventually worked as an actress for several years with the renowned Scandinavian Theatre group Cantabile 2 that creates site-specific performances around the world. With her own company Level 4 Theatre she launched her solo performance Section O directed by Stacey Christodoulou which won her a MECCA revelation award.
Her second mask performance Love, Child won her a METAS award for best leading performance. She has taught mask work at Cirque du Soleil, as well as at an orphanage in India, and the School of Stage Arts in Denmark. She is thrilled to be working as an actress, voice artist and mo-cap performer in Montreal, while teaching Mime and Improvisation at John Abbott College.
