Parable of the Sower, Singapore and Holland

Traveling with Octavia E. Butler's Parable of the Sower, the opera, is a gift. Our tour dates to festivals in Singapore and Holland this Spring and Summer have given us the opportunity to delve deeper into the many layers of this urgent work, and to experience how people across the globe are engaging the questions of environmental and political disaster, refuge and the building of true community. 

Our Singapore experience was exquisite.

We were moved by the Holland Festival and the Black Amsterdam community multi-level engagement with Octavia's work, and our trip there coincided with her birthday!
