Emote Your Emotions with Jordana Mishory

Learn how focusing your emotional energy can carry your scenes to new heights.

Here’s a fact: 93 percent of all communication is not what you say but HOW you say. But oftentimes, so much mental energy on stage is focused on coming up with the next perfect line, leading to scenes that can struggle.
Free yourself from struggling to come up with that next funny line, and instead get more bang for your buck by leaning into emoting. This workshop will give you tools and techniques to help nail down HOW you feel in a scene and then fully express those emotions, in an aim to help make your scenes easier and more successful.

This workshop might be right for you, if:

  • you’re looking to work on quickly deciding HOW you feel about a situation and then sticking to that emotional choice.
  • you want to work on nailing down a deal or a dynamic in a scene, especially with an aim toward making stronger second beats
  • you want to help provide your scene partners a clear button to push for game

During the day, Jordana works as WIT’s operations manager. At night, Jordana teaches advanced classes at WIT and performs with House Ensemble Uncle Gorgeous, Featured Ensemble The Hypothesis, and indie teams Galbraith & Mishory and I Wrote That.

Jordana was a cast member in The Heist, an improvised drama about a bank robbery gone wrong, as well as WIT’s POTUS Among Us 2016. She previously played with long-time indie stalwarts Cake Bagel, Jos. A. Banksy, and WIT Ensemble Love Onion, and directed Hellcat.

She has performed at festivals across the country including the Del Close Marathon and the Chicago Improv Festival — as well as at The Kennedy Center’s Page to Stage New Play Festival. Jordana completed the WIT curriculum and trained at the Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre in New York. She has spent enough money on workshops over the years to presumably purchase her own private island. (She assumes, having no idea how much private islands cost).

Jordana is a strong advocate of side-coaching with an intense focus on believable emotions and strong deals. She is a stronger advocate of having the most fun you’ve ever had in your entire life while on stage. She spends most of her time in scenes trying not to giggle at her hilarious troupemates.
