On May 22nd, ArtsEmerson hosted a livestream presentation of Octavia E. Butler’s Parable of the Sower where nearly 4500 people from all of the world joined us to listen to the powerful music of Toshi Reagon and Bernice Johnson Reagon, performed by a cast of amazing artists at the NYU Abu Dhabi production in 2015. This special evening marked the launch of Toshi’s Parable Path Boston, her year long artist residency at Emerson College.
We also were delighted to have pre and post show conversations with Toshi Reagon alongside MeiYin Wang, Shanta Thake, Eric Ting, Morley Kamen, Karma Mayet Johnson, and Signe Harriday.
We’ve made both conversations available to the public! We hope you’ll be able to enjoy these fruitful discussions about art making, community, and where we need to go as a collective moving forward to care for our earth and each other.
