Tarnanthi Exhibition

Blood on the Dance Floor is a work of autobiographical theatre based on the lived experience of Narangga and Kaurna performance artist Jacob Boehme. After being diagnosed with HIV in 1998, the choreographer, dancer and writer began searching for answers – and reached out to his ancestors. Through this powerful blend of theatre, image, text and choreography, Boehme pays homage to their ceremonies while dissecting the politics of gay, Blak and poz identities.

Produced by Insite Arts in association with Tandanya National Aboriginal Cultural Institute.
