The Alchemy of Change Festival

Starting on Friday, April 12, Toshi Reagon will host a festival marking the culmination of her work as a Discovery through Iterative Learning (DisTIL) fellow at Carolina Performing Arts, supported by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation. Since being named CPA’s inaugural DisTIL fellow in 2017, Reagon has worked with UNC faculty and other area collaborators on projects that go beyond performance. Reagon has focused on the issues and conditions explored in Octavia E. Butler’s novels Parable of the Sower and Parable of the Talents, which delineate a bleak future caused by humans’ ongoing actions against one another and the earth. Through class visits, artistic presentations, and conversations, Reagon and her collaborators have brought forth possibilities for positive change. Reagon and her collaborators offer several events open to the public, so that all can participate in this forward-looking vision. Learn more and register for these events.
