[Fantasia ’21] ‘Last Night at the Strip Club’ review: Introducing Sophia

Sophia’s Hire a Muse stint opens many doors.

In a global pandemic where it is advised to stay six feet apart, one might wonder what became of strip clubs? Some jobs became out of the question and others changed from the office to a home venue. The pandemic has changed the lives of many. Some people have changed careers entirely while some have found inventive ways to keep their careers going. Nicole Bazuin’s documentary short Last Night at the Strip Club examines one dancer’s choice to continue doing the work she loves in a variety of creative ways.

She has been able to perform sex work online.

Bazuin employs a fun narrative device that speaks to today’s audiences. Andrea Werhun, whose stage name is Sophia, gives a makeup tutorial while casually chatting about her decision to quit the strip club. Andrea applies the makeup she uses to become her stage person Sophia and explains all the creative manners she has been able to perform a type of sex work online. From dancing, to writing love letters, and facilitating writing workshops, Andrea’s experience is a unique and inspiring story of ambition and self discovery.
