Octavia E. Butler’s Parable of the Sower will be on view during Holland Festival in Amsterdam, this Wednesday the 20th and Thursday the 21st of June. With this must-see show musician Toshi Reagon takes you on a journey through the afrofuturistic story by the same name. Written by Octavia E. Butler, the novel that released 25 years ago is a classic in black literature. Toshi has toured with Lenny Kravitz, worked with Meshell Ndegeocello and started this project 10 years ago. The end result is a grandiose theatre piece by 20 performers that draws on two hundred years of black music, transcending genres. Lovers of socially engaged black music can expect an unforgettable evening.
