International street performer Tianna the Traveller performs at the Vernon Farmers’ Market June 11 and 22.
The show is 20-to-30 minutes and will include death-defying stunts, jokes, and stories. Tianna will perform several times during the day. In lieu of admission, donations will be accepted at the end of the show.
“Patrons are encouraged to come early and enjoy the market atmosphere while waiting for the show to begin,” said market manager Ingrid Baron.
Originally from Revelstoke, Tianna (born Miranda Allen) is spending June touring the Okanagan and Kootenays.
“Growing up in Revelstoke, I was always thrilled when a visiting performance came to town, It was exciting,” she said. “Now I have the opportunity to bring that inspiration and wonder back to small communities like mine.”
After completing her B.C. tour, Tianna will be performing across Canada before heading to Scotland, Austria, and Spain.
Allen is a classically trained actor who has performed in theatres across Canada and in Sydney, Australia.
Now living in Edmonton, she continues to act in live theatre and performs internationally with her street show and her circus act. Allen comes home to B.C. whenever she can to catch up with family, ski, and enjoy the natural beauty.
