Blood on the Dance Floor

Concert or Performance

24 Aug 2019

In August, Tuggeranong Arts Centre will present Blood on the Dance Floor – a piece of autobiographical theatre, based on the lived experience of artist Jacob Boehme.

A choreographer, dancer and writer from the Narangga and Kaurna nations of South Australia, Boehme was diagnosed with HIV in 1998. In search of answers, he reached out to his ancestors.

Through a powerful blend of theatre, image, text and choreography, Boehme pays homage to their ceremonies whilst dissecting the politics of gay, Blak and poz identities.

Blood on the Dance Floor debuted at Arts House Melbourne in 2016 before going on to Carriageworks for Sydney Festival in 2017 and has since toured both nationally and internationally.

Described as, ‘an unapologetic, passionate and visceral narrative that traverses time, space and multiple characters’.
