DanceHouse, SFU Woodward’s Cultural Programs, and Talking Stick Festival Present ILBIJERRI Theatre Company’s Blood on the Dance Floor by Jacob Boehme – February 6–9, 2019
DanceHouse, SFU Woodward’s Cultural Programs, and Talking Stick Festival are honoured to present the West Coast premiere of ILBIJERRI Theatre Company’s Blood on the Dance Floor by Jacob Boehme, on stage February 6–9, 2019 at 8pm at the SFU Goldcorp Centre for the Arts. Rooted in Aboriginal Dance, theatre, and storytelling, this award-winning work, written and performed by Jacob Boehme, choreographed by Mariaa Randall, and directed by Isaacc Drandic, is based on the deeply personal experience of Boehme, a renowned dancer, writer, and choreographer from the Narangga and Kaurna nations of South Australia. Blood on the Dance Floor unapologetically shares Boehme’s emotionally honest story of gay, Blak, and poz identities; and explores the struggle, heartache, and enduring spirit of someone living at the intersection of Aboriginal, queer, and HIV-positive communities.
Warning: For audience members age 15 and up. Performance includes adult concepts (sexual & drug references), coarse language, and loud music.
