POEM IN DEEP SPACE
Huygens was an atmospheric entry probe sent from the Cassinni mission, that landed successfully on Saturn's moon Titan in 2005. Built and operated by the European Space Agency (ESA)
Ten years before the landing, an competition was advertised to writers who were online, to write a 'welcome to earth' poem/text, which would be carried on the mission probe. Fredrik was successfull. His text travelled with the probe and now sits on the frozen moon Titan.
Survival of the thinnest
A one man show which was produced for (and sold out) in the Brighton festival. Due to it's sell out status, it was booked for a full run in the Edinburgh Festival (Fringe) Europe’s largest theatre festival. It was a humerous portrayal of the author's real adventure; as England's only professional poet into MMA cage fighting.
