Gu Po Productions

Gu Po Productions are artists Julia Hune-Brown and Keira Loughran, two third-generation Chinese Canadians who have come together in this exciting collaboration, born of unexpected overlapping family history and mutual admiration of each other’s work. The collective range of their combined practice represents over 35 years in theatre and community engaged arts as writers, directors, performers, producers, dramaturges, teachers, facilitators and makers. Their bigger-than-life grandmothers were friends and co-conspirators in developing Toronto’s first Chinatown culture, and this process of tracing that experience through their parents and aunts, to share with their own kids has been humbling, invigorating and healing over the last year.
