Cory Hippolyte
Shakespeare text, verse speaking and Globe performance practice

In any other field a ‘mistake’ or ‘failure’ to accomplish something is seen as a negative. We are the lucky few where these roads lead to new life, new
discoveries, new realms of possibilities, where we can go to edge of ourselves and what we know and be more! Therein lies creative gold. It is necessary and essential: relinquish any burden and go on the creative journey.
