Exploring the legacies and memories of our bloodlines, our need for community, and what blood means to each of us, Blood on the Dance Floor comes to Calgary with the High Performance Rodeo.

A choreographer, dancer, and writer from the Narangga and Kaurna Nations of South Australia, Jacob Boehme was diagnosed with HIV in 1998. In search of answers, he reached out to his ancestors.

Blood on the Dance Floor is an unapologetic, passionate, and visceral narrative that traverses time, space, and characters. It’s a powerful blend of theatre, image, text, and choreography that you won’t want to miss.

Blood on the Dance Floor runs January 24 to 26, 2019 at the DJD Dance Centre (111 12th Ave. SE).
