On Feb. 8, 2017 at 1:30 p.m. Olivet College students gathered inside of Mott Auditorium on Olivet’s campus to listened to a presentation called ‘The Hook-up’ addressing the social issue of sex on college campuses.
The presentation was presented by Paula Ramirez of Catharsis productions based out of Chicago, Illinois.
“I am an actor that is my background. Seven years ago I started combining theater and acting with social issues and immediately I got hooked, and when I found Catharsis I knew that this was the path for me right now. Being able to combine the skill of performing with also a subject that I really care about is important to me,” said Ramirez in a recorded interview after the show.
Ramirez’s’ style of presenting involved a lot of interaction with the crowd. She stood next to two average size whiteboards that Ramirez used as props to make illustrations and to better explain her message.
