Bloodwood examines the idea of utopia through the prism of two very different, although inextricably connected worlds – one historical and one imagined.

Each world exists within the sphere of its own rules, boundaries, possibilities, limitations, language and logic.

These two worlds exist alongside one another in Bloodwood, each world becoming the other, each world influencing the other, the two worlds and their inhabitants mirroring, shadowing and predicting one another.

The two worlds raise up questions: What is faith? What is language? Where beats the heart of a nation?
