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.
You will be transfixed by the blend of theatre, image, text and choreography, as Boehme pays homage ancestral ceremonies whilst dissecting the politics of gay, Blak and poz identities.
This is an unapologetic, passionate and visceral narrative that traverses time, space and characters. A story of our need to love and be loved, Boehme’s striking monologue reveals our secret identities and our deepest fears, seeking to invoke ancestral lineage in a contemporary quest for courage and hope.
"…tells a story that is rarely heard in a way that is accessible and, ultimately, affirming"
"Boehme is marvelous: his charismatic presence and easy smile, graceful movement and the emotional intelligence behind his storytelling make this an entertaining, moving work that elicits as much empathy as laughter."
