Dušan Vicen: One Conspicuously Intelligent Writer

Born in 1966 in Trestené. He graduated from Faculty of Education, Matej Bel University and Theatre Faculty, The Academy of Performing Arts in Bratislava. He works as a director and an actor, he writes theatre and radio plays (Hry [The Plays], 2013), and he is the author of two prose books (Homo joga [Homo Yoga], 1997, Dotyk s absolútnom [Contact with the Absolute], 2017). Tamara Janecová wrote about him: “Vicen is one conspicuously intelligent writer—in Dotyk s absolútnom, he decided to go for big topics such as arts, seeking the meaning of life, lacking one’s own place in the world, knottiness of human relationships, inability to communicate, gender roles, and solitude.”
