Alana’s Biography

Ever since she won the German Grand Prix 2011, and was thus the first woman to achieve the prestigious title German Champion of Magic, Alana is considered today’s female shooting star among magicians.

But success didn’t come overnight. Born and raised in Hamburg, Germany, Alana took her first steps on stage on her fifth birthday. As the daughter of the famous illusionists Frederik & Margit, the little girl experienced the world of showbusiness at a very early age. Alana assisted her father until she gained enough confidence to perform her first piece of magic at the age of 13. Only three years later, Alana enchanted her audience with longer stage performances and close up magic miracles. Due to numerous appearances in variety theatres, at trade fairs, corporate and private events and on cruise ships, her performance reflects a unique spontaneity and versatility together with female charme and elegance.

Very soon Alana started working on her first original act: Magic InStyle. Diamonds shine, pearls appear and high heels materialize from nowhere. Alana’s enchanting words take the audience into a wonderful world of magical fashionable surprises. One spectator even experiences his very personal “déjà  shoe” with Alana. In 2007 Magic InStyle received the award Großer Hansepreis der Zauberkunst of the magic society Magische Nordlichter. One year later Alana won third price at the German Championships of Magic, followed by contracts in England, Spain and the United States of America. The young talent wowed her audiences all over the world – performing in each country’s native language. In 2009 Alana presented her own 20 minutes show at the famous Magic Castle, Hollywood – movie stars like Nicolas Cage and Johnny Depp are members of this private magic club. In the same year she was invited to play Magic InStyle at the World Magic Seminar in Las Vegas in front of the convention’s patrons Siegfried & Roy.

Shortly after this highlight, Alana decided to create a new act to excite her audiences of laymen and magic experts alike. In these stressful times, who doesn’t dream about having several hands? An appealing idea for the young artist who “magished” her master degree in Media and Communication studies simultaneously to her magic career. Alana’s act In her hands makes those dreams come true: reams of hands chase, tease and play with their mistress and make her favourite jewellery vanish and reappear until she turns completely headless... The Grand Prix Award in Germany was followed only a few days later by the Russian Grand Prix of Magic 2011 at the White Magic convention in Perm - one of the most important international competitions. This award led Alana to the famous French TV Show Le Plus Grand Cabaret Du Monde hosted by Patrick Sébastien who called her act “a triumph”. In the beginning of 2012 the Magic Circle awarded her as the Magician of the year in Germany. With this success, Alana made her final breakthrough into the top class of international magicians.
