Blood on the Dance Floor 2016 single work drama

'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.'

'With a contemporary voice Jacob Boehme pays homage to the ceremonies of his ancestors whilst dissecting the politics of gay, Blak and poz identities in a visceral narrative that voyages time, space and character. Blood on the Dance Floor is an unapologetic physical monologue.' (Source: Ilbijerri Theatre Company website)
