Near-Future Fictions Vol. 04

Tue 20 Feb 7pm - 9pm

THE MAIN ROOM

Virtual Futures presents Near-Future Fictions Vol. 04 on the theme of '(Dis)ease of the i-Mortal.'

Born of earth or brought back from far away, biological or viral invasions or diseases can affect humans on any scale; from protecting or plaguing an individual to becoming an epidemic that affects us all. Our authors take on a topic that Literature has meditated on from its inception; from Defoe’s Journal of the Plague Year, to Mary Shelley’s The Last Man, to Marquez’s 100 Years of Solitude, to Camus’s The Plague, to King’s The Stand.

 

They will show us the good, the bad, but not the bland; and predict the future of infection and infestation in any of its various forms. What is the nature of the diseases, contagions or contaminations have in store?

 

Join us for an evening that incorporates original reading, performance and live art as Virtual Futures continues its mission to to reassert the significance of science fiction as a tool for navigating the increasing technologization of society and culture.
