VIRTUOSIC WOMEN COME TOGETHER TO CREATE SOMETHING NEW

"Collaboration is what makes theatre such a unique artform; you can never make it in isolation and often we make it in dialogue with other artists who have transformed our own creative lives. Over the course of ArtsEmerson’s seven seasons, we have seen a variety of examples of collaboration between some of the most significant artists of our time. Cicely Tyson and Horton Foote; Isabella Rossellini and Jean Claude Carrier; Mikhail Baryshnikov and Annie-B Parson. Octavia E. Butler’s Parable of the Sower is the newest opportunity for audiences to witness the result of the work of two great talents in conversation together on stage.

Octavia E. Butler is the mother of the Afrofuturism movement—a mix of black history and culture with science fiction themes that is thriving in our contemporary society. She has a huge following of fans who refer to themselves as “Blerds”—black nerds. Her body of work earned her many awards including being the first science fiction author to win a MacArthur Fellowship for fiction. Butler tells stories from black perspectives in intersectional narratives that bring many underrepresented communities into the imagined future of the United States.”

Leadership“ArtsEmerson puts the world on stage and screen to help us understand our world, celebrate our place in it, and explore how we each can contribute to its transformation. We are passionately committed to delivering exceptional experiences for our audiences and operate from the belief that the arts belong to everyone. We invite you to come with us to places you have not been and share experiences you could not anticipate but will never forget. And, if you are so inclined, to engage with a room full of fellow travelers (who are your neighbors) to sort it all out. Let us begin to rediscover our community through the shared experience of art and conversation.”
