Free Film and Theatre University

Next class:  Friday 15 March 2019, 19h-20h30, Eric Morris Technique with Celia Anne Browne

Join our Meetup group and RSVP to attend!

Join us for this mini-lesson exploring the techniques of master American acting instructor Eric Morris. Truth is the quest. Implementing Morris techniques, the actor is increasingly open to experiencing authentically, free to express emotionally, creating profound ensemble with other players, and ultimately to embody a character amidst complex given circumstances, to tell a powerful and riveting story.

Celia Anne Browne is a certified Eric Morris instructor. Eric Morris, an international teacher based in Hollywood, California, is the author of ten books including the classic No Acting Please. The system is rooted in Stanislavsky and Strasberg as Eric was an Actors Studio member and served some time as head of the Directors Unit in Hollywood. From there Eric created his revolutionary system as used by Jack Nicholson and Johnny Depp, to name a few.

After the mini-lesson, stick around for drinks, snacks and mingling afterwards. Meet other English-speaking and bilingual actors in Paris and discover what classes and workshops BAW has to offer.

Celia Anne Browne has an extensive background in the arts. Dance was her first love. She was born into a thespian family who ran a theater in Montauk in the Hamptons for seventeen years and continues to produce in NYC. As an actress, she has experience in theater, film, and television. While in NYC she performed in many original plays including at Playwrights Horizons, Second Stage, Theater for the New City, and Ensemble Studio Theatre, and several stages on Theatre Row. She has also appeared in independent films and the soap opera All My Children . Longing to expand her experience, she shifted her focus from professional acting to the teaching of Yoga and Meditation. Distinguished producers, directors, and actors have been some of her favorite students. She was on staff at the award-winning Cornerstone Theater Company in LA for six years. In the past few years she has been writing, including developing a treatment and script for a TV show. She was encouraged to teach the Eric Morris System of Acting, a method she has felt passionate about and at home with for many years. Celia has known Eric since she was a teenager, and his instrumental and craft technique have been an extraordinary creative guide. Currently she teaches in LA, NYC, and Paris. Other wonderful study of the acting craft has included the Acting program at Emerson College, Circle In The Square and New Actors Workshop in NYC, the conservatory of the late greats George Morrison, Mike Nichols, and Paul Sills.
