Kenny Olson's creative research is focused on making meaningful and engaging experiences using narrative and human centered interaction. His work converges at the crossroads of theatre and animation under the umbrella of themed entertainment design. He believes “theatre Is everywhere” and every day brings a new opportunity to say “yes and”.
