The central idea of Chekhov's method is that a character can be created starting not from affective memory, from the actor's personal baggage of emotional experiences, but from stimulating the imagination to create a mental vision of the character, from which, through a well-mastered technique can lead to a much more viable and interesting acting interpretation than by way of the System created by Stanislavski. This article analyzes the viability of the pedagogical tools proposed by Chekhov in the context of the contemporary pedagogy of acting.
