This one-man showexplores the legacies and memories of our bloodlines, our need for community, and what blood means to each of us .
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 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 monologue reveals our secret identities and our deepest fears, seeking to invoke ancestral lineage in a contemporary quest for courage and hope.
Boehme is also working with Tuggeranong Arts Centre and the ACT Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community as part of a longer project called The Blood Library.
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. It is showing in Canberra for the first time.
The production is supported by Australia Council for the Arts, Creative Victoria, Australian Government Indigenous Culture Support, and City of Melbourne.
