the book of life - hope  harmony from rwandan voices photoArtsEmerson is excited to bring Odile Gakire (Kiki) Katese’s The Book of Life - Hope & Harmony From Rwandan Voices to the Emerson Cutler Majestic Theatre from October 18 – 22, 2023.

In Katese’s newest project with Volcano (Canada) & The Woman Cultural Centre (Rwanda), she leads an audience through a remarkable journey – a kind of how-to guide to rebuild a deep understanding of life in the aftermath of incalculable loss.

In 2019, a group of Rwandan and Canadian artists came together in Kigali to develop a show about recovery from trauma. Combining original music from Ingoma Nshya—Rwanda’s first ever women’s drumming group—an extraordinary collection of letters written by ordinary Rwandans, the wisdom of Kiki Katese, and a story about talking animals, the profound result is called The Book of Life.

Tickets for The Book of Life may be purchased 24/7 at, or by calling 617-824-8400 (Tue-Sat from 12:00PM ET - 6:00PM ET). The Paramount Center Box Office (559 Washington Street, Boston) is open for walk-up service Thu-Sat from Noon - 6:00 PM ET. Tickets start at $25.

Thanks to generous support from Rockland Trust, a limited number of $10 Mobile Rush tickets will be available at 9:00 AM ET each performance day on a first-come, first-served basis, exclusively through the TodayTix mobile app. For more information, please click on “General Public'' when you visit ArtsEmerson’s Offers web page.
