John Gillett has worked for more than thirty years as an actor, director and teacher. He trained as an actor at the Actors Workshop (1969-1971), London’s first Stanislavski-based studio, having gained a BA at Aston University in Birmingham. In theatre his work has ranged from repertory to young people’s theatre, touring 2000 seat venues to a tent at Rotherham Miners’ Gala, from fringe to the West End and London Theatres including the Royal Court and Young Vic.
As a director and teacher, John has been involved with numerous drama schools and theatre organisations such as the Actors’ Centre, Re:Actors Theatre Group, for which he was the Artistic Director, and from 2000 – 2003 East 15 Acting School where he was Head of the Post Graduate Acting Course.
In 2007, he published ACTING ON IMPULSE: RECLAIMING THE STANISLAVSKI APPROACH. A Practical workbook for actors , which is the culmination of his work as actor/director/teacher during the last four decades. He also wrote an article – “Experiencing or pretending – are we getting to the core of Stanislavski’s approach?” – for edition one of Stanislavski Studies (March, 2012).
His new book, Voice into Acting (written with Christina Gutekunst) was published by Bloomsbury in January, and Acting Stanislavski: A practical guide to Stanislavski’s approach and legacy was published by Bloomsbury in February.
