The project is set in a time that has not yet arrived, in a culture burdened by a protracted war. It takes place in the neutral, black-market-run Northern Zone, a densely populated, man-made beehive clinging to a conglomeration of obsolete oil platforms and industrial refineries perched in international waters. Visitors to the Northern Zone find entertainment at a notorious venue, Café Oublié, “where everyone is free to forget”. Café Oublié takes its impetus from the ancient Greek myth of Apollo and Daphne, a tale of love, transformation, and loss.
