Utp presents the world premiere of M’ap Boulé at the Darlinghurst Theatre’s Eternity Playhouse.

Music, revolution and self-reckoning collide to create M’ap Boulé, a unique blend of lyrical storytelling and powerful songwriting.

Developed over the last four years with Utp this earth-shaking work written by Haitian-Australian artist Nancy Denis (STC’s Blithe Spirit and A Raisin in The Sun) and directed by Anthea Williams (Belvoir’s HIR, Griffin Theatre Company’s Since Ali Died), tells the story of a child of immigrant parents growing up in Australia in search of herself. Inspired by her Ancestors and their stories, M’ap Boulé shares Nancy’s ongoing story of spirit, belonging and discovery.

M’ap Boulé is Haitian Krèole for “I’m on fire”. This performance is set to the backdrop of the first black-led republic of Haiti when black Haitian slaves revolted against British and French colonisers, sending the country ablaze. This powerful history is interwoven with the personal narrative of Denis, a Haitian-Australian woman living on Gadigal land.
