Jeff Morrison comes to us most recently from the American Repertory Theatre’s Institute for Advanced Theatre training at Harvard University, where he teaches the first 2 months of the M.F.A. voice curriculum during the summer.
For the last five years, he served on the theatre faculty of San Diego State University, where he taught vocal production and text work, movement and body awareness, and collaborative approaches to making new theatre. He has also taught at the Moscow Art Theatre, the Old Globe School in San Diego, Tufts University, and the University of Northern Iowa.
He received his BA in Theatre and Folklore from the University of Pennsylvania (1992); his M.F.A. in Acting from University of Wisconsin, Madison, (1997); and is a Certified Associate Teacher of Fitzmaurice Voicework (2000). He recently received a $25,000 grant from the Trust for Mutual Understanding to fund an international teaching exchange between Russian and American teachers of voice for the theatre, and will be traveling to Moscow in October to finish that project.
He has been working as an experimental theatre artist for over ten years, first as a student of Roberta Carreri of the Odin Teatret, and has created or collaborated in new works that have appeared in New York, Philadelphia, Boston, Seattle, San Diego, St. Louis, Madison, and Cleveland.
