AnJu Hyppolite

AnJu Hyppolite is a Brooklyn-born, Queens-bred award-winning actor, writer, director, and educator who works at the intersection of the arts, technology, and social equity. She facilitates theater arts, improvisation, devised theatre, and playwriting workshops with NYC public school youth and community members.

AnJu’s Lakou NOU project (Canarsie), Project Unearth explores the multiplicities of identity within the Haitian-American experience. AnJu spent the past year in conversation with Haitian-American women. Her storytelling workshop produced a script that describes moments of strength, power, vulnerability, learning/unlearning, and self-actualization. The women used their voices to stand in their truth, bravely and vulnerably, as they shared their experiences.
