Meyerhold gave initial boosts to the stage careers of some of the most distinguished comic actors of the Soviet Union , including Igor Ilyinsky and Erast Garin. Both starred in his landmark production of Nikolai Gogol 's The Inspector General , as the "full of energy, mischievous, charming Ilyinsky left his post to the nervous, fragile, suddenly freezing, grotesquely anxious Garin.
Energy was replaced by trance, the dynamic with the static, happy jesting humour with bitter and glum satire". He argued that people feel physically before they feel emotionally, so that by practicing and assuming poses, gestures, and movements, emotions will automatically occur. He developed a number of body expressions that his actors would use to portray specific emotions and characters.
