A Platform for Performance Art
Sapling was Co-Founded in 2014 by Roberto Sapienza and Bryan Kling. The company was officially launched in 2017 after announcing their first concert titled: "Love, Really". Bryan and Roberto had the idea to create a company that was unlike any other. They envisioned an overwhelming feeling of culture and community present at every production and event.
