Eric Morris is one of the most controversial and exciting acting coaches in the history of American theater.
With his unique approach to acting from a BEING place, he is revolutionizing the concept of performance.
Eric Morris began his involvement in theater at Northwestern University, where he graduated with a degree in Dramatic Arts.
His acting career of over one hundred Equity plays, twenty major motion pictures, fifty network television episodes, and running roles on two syndicated TV series led him on a search for new and workable acting techniques.
His inherent passion for truth has resulted in the development of a process of work that is very specific in exploring the origins of individual talent and that encourages each actor’s unique statement.
Eric’s techniques are rooted in the Method, yet they distinctly represent his own approach, placing him among the most recognized acting coaches in the country.
His books, No Acting Please, Being & Doing, Irreverent Acting, Acting From the Ultimate Consciousness, Acting, Imaging & The Unconscious, Diary of a Professional Experiencer and Freeing the Actor are used in colleges, universities, and private schools all over the world.
Eric Morris lives and teaches in Hollywood but also travels regularly to New York and other cities around the country to conduct workshops. He has founded the American New Theater, a company of bi-coastal actors who have a common approach to acting and a common goal of carrying that approach into theater and film.
