Science fiction and the human condition
Victor Dixen | Singapore Writers Festival
Featuring also Djohan A Rahman and Tony Estrella.
Science fiction has the ability to envision a human life under various scientific or technological realities that are radically different from our own. What can science fiction teach us about the human condition?
Of Danish and French origins, Victor Dixen is the author of three series for young adults. Having suffered his whole life from insomnia, Dixen takes advantage of these sleepless nights to get inspiration, as he says “they are my muses.”
The annual Singapore Writers Festival (SWF) returns from 1st to 10th November with the theme “A Language of Our Own”. This year’s festival seeks to explore the role of language in the formation of identities and communities through panel discussions, workshops, performances, films and talks featuring writers and speakers.
Festival Pass: $25
