OCTAVIA E. BUTLER’S PARABLE OF THE SOWER AT HOLLAND FESTIVAL

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.
