What's Included

Eric Morris’s No Acting Please is the book that “put it all together” for Johnny Depp.  Jack Nicholson wrote the forward to it and it is a resource used in colleges, universities, acting schools, and by actors around the world. The Eric Morris System of Experiential Acting is complete and comprehensive, teaching the actor to work organically and specifically from a place of "Being" and personal truth, eliminating the separation between actor and character. After studying personally with Eric Morris, Adam Christopher Veasman has been given a unique endorsement by Eric to teach this experiential acting method-based system here to Chicago.   This complete system, at times called controversial, is a two part, method-based system that goes “beyond the method” by dealing with the actor’s instrument in a very specific approach to the craft that gives the actor the tools to become self-reliant and “experience personal reality” rather than “act.” ​ The focus of No Acting Please - The Class is honing the individual's instrumental and their craft process. Both parts are equally important and we spend an equal amount of time on each. The unique focus on the individual allows for actors of any experience level to be in the same class and learn from one another. Note: After taking this class you would be eligible for No Acting Please – On Going; 6 weeks for $275 ABOUT THE CLASS  The emphasis is journey based focused on instrumentally freeing the actor, to increase awareness and on having the craft tools they need to be self-reliant. The class is personal and challenging and a place where the focus is on the “how” of doing work they aspire to do. Actors can work on material old and new, auditions or anything else they might choose during their individual time.
