About this show

In this genre-defying work of concert performance featuring 20 artists on stage, Octavia E. Butler's Parable of the Sower brings together 30 powerful songs drawn from 200 years of African-American song traditions to give musical life to Butler's acclaimed science fiction novel of the same name. Written by Toshi Reagon, who Vibe Magazine called "one helluva rock'n'roller-coaster ride," in collaboration with her mother, Bernice Johnson Reagon, the iconic singer, scholar and activist, Parable of the Sower becomes a mesmerizing theatrical work of rare power and beauty that reveals deep insights on gender, race and the future of human civilization.
