This week’s guest: Olivia Hartle
Olivia Hartle is a PhD candidate in Community Engagement at Point Park University in Pittsburgh, PA. She is a theatre director, educator and improviser, and her dissertation research is a phenomenological exploration of the lived experience of improvisation and the potential for improv to operate as a “cultural therapeutics.” Olivia has spent many hours interviewing improvisers and she is looking forward to having some improvisers interview her for once!
