The main character is a geographical belt stretching from Haugesund on the Norwegian west coast, across The Baltic Sea, and further via Poland, the Carpathian Mountains in Ukraine and towards The Black Sea. Inspired by Dag Solstad’s short story “Moscow” and the Ukrainian poet Oleh Lysheha, fuelled by news reports about submarine activity outside the Stockholm archipelago.

The pre-project is supported by Arts Council Norway and Dramatikkens hus.
