Freelance choreographer and dance artist, Julie-Ann Long is a former Director of the celebrated One Extra Company. Inspired by the acrobatics display of the Shaolin monks and Jeffrey Smart's painting The Picnic (Nun's Picnic) 1957, Julie-Ann is working on a new solo performance project with the support of a grant from the NSW Ministry for the Arts Dance Fund. The proposed work, The Nun's Picnic will be a joint collaboration between choreographer/performer Julie-Ann Long, painter Lucy Culliton, film-maker Samuel James and photographer Heidrun Lohr. Themes of shifting identity, transportation and transformation will guide the work
