Based on the dystopian novel by the late Afro-futurist and science fiction author Octavia Butler, Parable of the Sower is a genre-defying work of political theater that harnesses 200 years of Black music. It chronicles the spiritual awakening of young Lauren Olamina amidst a not-so-distant America wracked by the violence brought on by climate change that has driven society to the brink. Exploding the form of a ritual song-cycle, Parable fuses science fiction, AfricanAmerican spiritualism, deep insights intogender and race, and climate activism to construct a mesmerizing meditation on the future of human civilization.
