Blood on the Dance Floor

Blood is both a substance and a metaphor in a new dance theatre work by Jacob Boehme - the partly autobiographical Blood on the Dance Floor.

It ranges over ground that’s deeply personal to the Narungga and Kaurna man, who was diagnosed with HIV at a relatively young age.

It's also an ode to the forgotten generation who died at the height of the AIDS pandemic.

Jacob is performing the work during the Sydney Festival.

Blood on the Dance Floor is directed by Isaac Drandic with choreography by Mariaa Randall and it’s produced by Ilbijerri, the Melbourne-based Indigenous theatre company.
