We hold memories in our blood. It connects us. It defines us.
Jacob Boehme is a choreographer, dancer and writer from the Narangga and Kaurna nations of South Australia. When Jacob was diagnosed with HIV in 1998 he reached out to his ancestors in search of answers.
Blood on the Dance Floor explores the legacies and memories embedded in our bloodlines and each person’s need for community and connection. Examining the way in which blood defines a person, Boehme questions how our most precious life source can both unite and divide us.
Jacob Boehme’s contemporary voice pays homage to the ceremonies of his ancestors whilst dissecting the politics of Gay, Blak and Poz identities in a visceral narrative that channels time, space and character. Blood on the Dance Floor is an unapologetic physical monologue.
There is a captioned performance at 6pm on 24 January 2017.
Note: There will be some coarse language at this event. Recommended for ages 16 +. Latecomers will not be admitted.
