bloodroot is a lunar collective created between gal*in_dog aka Guillermo Galindo and Amber Stucke. Coming from the future, bloodroot creates site specific installations that are activated by performance to open liminal portals with sound, language, and ritual to honor and call to the land, animals, plants, and stars.


Moving Without Being Seen

bloodroot offers an incantation to change the shape of the wind within the region of the Los Angeles Basin. Located on the grounds of the traditional territories of the Tongva Nation and looking out toward the Pacific Ocean, the site for the performance holds the space as a vortex to heal the land. Numerous destructive wild fires in the surrounding area are intensified by the Santa Ana Winds every year, which has given both death and life to the region. From a series of actions that includes, sound, language, and ritual, the piece honors and calls to the wind.
