Julie Phan

If Julie Phan (19/20 Playwrights Unit) was a piece of art, she would be the uncut Shrek 2 DVD sequel. She is a Vietnamese-Chinese writer, actor and pole artist based in Toronto and Montreal, and is currently a second year playwriting student at the National Theatre School of Canada. She is best known for disappointing her father and her work with fu-GEN asian theatre company (double bill, fearless).

Never Walk Alone

Written by Julie Phan

The business of escapism under layers of fantasy: Never Walk Alone. explores the multiplicity of experiences in and around the strip club microcosm. Through anecdotes, mythology and dance, we examine contemporary fears around the threat of female sexuality.
