Octavia E. Butler's classic and more-timely-than-ever novel Parable of the Sower is transformed into an innovative concert performance by acclaimed musician Toshi Reagon in collaboration with her mother, Bernice Johnson Reagon, the iconic singer, scholar and activist. Drawing from 200 years of African-American song traditions, this show brings to life the story of young Lauren Olamina, who lives in a near-future America, where climate change has led to the violent near-collapse of society. After losing her family and home, Lauren is forced to head out into the chaotic world, armed only with her own religion of change. Don't miss this new take on a powerful work as ArtsEmerson brings Octavia E. Butler's Parable of the Sower: A Concert Performance to the Emerson/Paramount Center in Boston.
