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 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 is an unapologetic, passionate and visceral narrative that traverses time, space and characters. A story of our need to love and be loved, Boehme’s striking monologue reveals our secret identities and our deepest fears, seeking to invoke ancestral lineage in a contemporary quest for courage and hope.

“…tells a story that is rarely heard in a way that is accessible and, ultimately, affirming.” - The Music

Blood on the Dance Floor is a piece of autobiographical theatre, based on the lived experience of dancer and choreographer Jacob Boehme. As such it includes elements of movement and dance. While primarily a theatre performance this show also has cross-over appeal for dance.
