Instructor: Mishell Livio
Saturday, November 10th 2pm-4:30pm
What’s a support move and what’s stealing focus? How to navigate when you’re in the scene, realizing that you are the actor/writer and when you're on the sidelines, realizing that you are the editor/director. The workshop will work on stepping outside of your own ego and doing what’s best for the piece and the scene.
Mishell first started performing with her father's mariachi band at the age of 1. She acted a fool and was thrown out of many church musicals in elementary school. While sporadically working as an actress on TV and in Film in LA, she worked as a professional model but decided she liked eating and having an opinion, so she took the leap into standup and improv comedy. She landed a job as a morning radio co-host in 2013 at Rock 102.1 KFMA-FM in Tucson, Arizona with Fook. She then journeyed to Salt Lake City onto ALT 101.9 KHTB-FM and eventually ended up in Chicago on 101.1 WKQX-FM. Currently, she is the creator and executive director of the Hispanic Ensemble, Generation LatinX. You can see her performing comedy with the CSz Chicago Ensemble, iO Chicago, Second City Theatricals, and Laugh Out Loud-Chicago just to name a few. More info at www.MishellLivio.com
