Sapologie celebrates the vision and voices of some of Melbourne’s most talented and boldest young artists with an evening of spoken word, music, story telling and much more. With Roots in The Congo, Sapologie embodies a vivid, unapologetic and stylish resistance.
If last year’s show was any indicator on what to expect at this year’s show, be sure to get ready to be moved, challenged and inspired. From one of the creators of Encre Noire comes the highly anticipated sequel, Sapologie. This promises to be a night you won’t want to miss, so be sure to purchase your tickets early.
