Freelance choreographer and dance artist, Julie-Anne Long is the 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-Anne is working on a new solo performance project with the support of a grant from the NSW Ministry for the Arts Dance Fund. In 2003 she jointly collaborated with painter Lucy Culliton, film-maker Samuel James and photographer Heidrun Lohr. Themes of shifting identity, transportation and transformation guided the work. In 2004 Julie- Anne returns to Hill End to continue working on this project and to participate in INTERFACE, a community arts project driven by Bathurst Regional Art Gallery and supported by the Commonwealth Government via it Regional Arts Fund.
