Julie Holledge worked as a professional actor and director in the British theatre for ten years before moving to Australia to join the Flinders Drama Centre. She has established a research centre for performance at Flinders, which has evolved into the Australian Performance Laboratory (APL). The current focus of the laboratory is intercultural performance and new technologies; two of its most notable productions were collaborations between Australian and Japanese artists: Masterkey (Adelaide Festival of Arts 1988 and Perth Festival 1988) and Exile (Sydney Spring Festival 2000 and the Shanghai Festival 2000). In addition to her activities as a professional director and university teacher, Julie Holledge has published extensively in the field of women's performance.

Major publications include her ground breaking study Innocent Flowers: Women in Edwardian Theatre (Virago) and her most recent work co-authored with Dr Joanne Tompkins Women's Intercultural Performance (Routledge). She was the artistic director of the Third International Women's Playwrights Conference held in Adelaide in 1994, the convenor of the Art, Technology and New Performer Symposium, Shanghai 2002, and has convened the Australian delegations for the IWPC in Manila 2003, and Jakarta 2006
