Overview

Being & Doing is a unique book in that an actor can open it to any page and practice the exercises suggested on that page. As a workbook it can be used daily to explore the various techniques that every actor should become familiar with and ultimately apply to his work. The book is divided into three sections: the Instrument, which explores exercises and techniques designed to eliminate blocks and obstacles, thus freeing the actor; the Craft, which is a practical approach to fulfilling material; and the Business, which informs the actor about his role in the working arena. The book also contains many blank pages for the actor to make notes on.

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 Morris lives and teaches in Los Angeles 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.
