Jacob Boehme’s deeply personal, autobiographical work BLOOD ON THE DANCE FLOOR arrives at Arts Centre Melbourne’s Fairfax Studio for two nights only (20 – 21 August) as part of the Big World, Up Close series.

BLOOD ON THE DANCE FLOOR  explores the legacies and memories of bloodlines, the need for community, and what blood means to each of us – questioning how this most precious fluid unites and divides us

“Having been diagnosed with HIV in 1998, First Nations Australian choreographer, dancer and writer Jacob Boehme went searching for answers.  Being a descendant of the Narangga and Kaurna nations of South Australia, 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.”
