About

Blood on the Dance Floor
By Jacob Boehme
We hold memories in our blood. It connects us. It defines us.

Blood on the Dance Floor explores the legacies and memories of our bloodlines, our need for community, and what blood means to each of us – questioning how  this most precious fluid unites and divides us.  A choreographer, dancer and writer from the Narangga and Kaurna nations of
South Australia, Jacob Boehme was diagnosed with HIV in 1998. In search of answers, he reached out to his ancestors. Through a powerful blend of
storytelling, projection and movement, Boehme pays homage to their ceremonies whilst dissecting the politics of gay, Blak and poz identities.
Blood on the Dance Floor is a story of our need to love and be loved. Boehme’s striking monologue uses humour and intimacy to reveal our secret identities and our deepest fears, seeking to invoke ancestral lineage in a contemporary quest
for courage and hope.
