Theatre (or theater, see spelling differences) is a branch of the performing arts. .While any performance may be considered theatre, as a performing art, it focuses almost exclusively on live performers creating a self contained drama.^ I believe in the possibility of creating great and compelling art under almost any conceivable set of constraints.

[1] A performance qualifies as dramatic by creating a representational illusion.[2] By this broad definition, theatre has existed since the dawn of man, as a result of the human tendency for storytelling. .Since its inception, theatre has come to take on many forms, utilizing speech, gesture, music, dance, and spectacle, combining the other performing arts, often as well as the visual arts, into a single artistic form.^ I have always wanted to get into some form of photography, your video has made me want to finally take the plunge.

The word derives from the Ancient Greek theatron (θέατρον) meaning "the seeing place."[3]

History

Panoramic view of the Hellenic theatre at Epidaurus.
The word theatre means a "place for seeing."[4] The two most common types of theatre plays are comedy and tragedy, symbolised by the theatre masks. The first recorded theatrical event was a performance of the sacred plays of the myth of Osiris and Isis in 2500 BC in Egypt.[5] .This story of the god Osiris was performed annually at festivals throughout the civilization, marking the beginning of a long relationship between theatre and religion.^ The Academys cultural and educational wing the Academy Foundation annually grants more than $1 million to film scholars, cultural organizations and film festivals throughout the U.S. and abroad.

.The ancient Greeks began formalising theatre as an art, developing strict definitions of tragedy and comedy as well as other forms, including satyr plays.^ If we accept that definition for a moment, it is a form that suits the TV series format rather well.

^ The Kirk character was played like an obnoxious, unmannered teen punk with an attitude.

.The Greeks also developed the concepts of dramatic criticism, acting as a career, and theatre architecture.^ But that's a case of a single dramatic presentation giving us one character to care about in the second act and then replacing her in the climax .

Western theatre continued to develop under the Roman Empire, in medieval England, and continued to thrive, taking on many alternate forms in Spain, Italy, France, and Russia in the 16th, 17th and 18th centuries. .The general trend over the centuries was away from the poetic drama of the Greeks and the Renaissance and toward a more realistic style, especially following the Industrial Revolution.^ TV series generally (though not exclusively) tend towards what rogue calls "soft SF" for obvious reasons, but the quality of the resulting drama depends not on the style of SF, but on whether it is executed well or badly.

[10] Japanese forms of Kabuki, Noh, and Kyogen date back to the 17th century AD.[11] Other Eastern forms were developed throughout China, Korea, and Southeast Asia.
.The most popular forms of theatre in the medieval Islamic world were puppet theatre (which included hand puppets, shadow plays and marionette productions) and live passion plays known as ta'ziya, where actors re-enact episodes from Muslim history.^ Just how much modern world history do you think you could reconstruct from the combined episodes of "JAG," "M*A*S*H" and "Hogan's Heroes"?

In particular, Shia Islamic plays revolved around the shaheed (martyrdom) of Ali's sons Hasan ibn Ali and Husayn ibn Ali. .Live secular plays were known as akhraja, recorded in medieval adab literature, though they were less common than puppetry and ta'ziya theatre.^ In Star Wars, it is due to engine malfunction, which is really a LOT more common than what they did in the new Star Trek, with Sulu forgetting something, which is a lot more funny.

Technical aspects of theatre

Theatre is a highly collaborative endeavour. .Although the most recognisable figures in theatre are the directors, playwrights, and actors, plays are usually produced by a production team that commonly includes a scenic or set designer, lighting designer, costume designer, sound designer, stage manager, props mistress or master and production manager.^ Though Hitchcock presented himself as the sole author of his work, the director was in fact a deeply collaborative artist, working intensely with actors, producers, cinematographers, screenwriters, editors, and production and sound designers to create what the public knew as an Alfred Hitchcock film.

Depending on the production, this team may also include a dramaturge, video designer or fight director. The artistic staff is assisted by technical theatre personnel who handle creation and execution of the production.

Types

Drama

Drama (literally translated as action, from a verbal root meaning "To do") is the branch of theatre in which speech, either from written text (plays), or improvised is paramount. A companion word dran, also Greek, means to do. Classical forms of drama, including Greek and Roman drama, classic English drama, notably works of William Shakespeare and Christopher Marlowe, and French drama, for instance works of Molière, are still performed today.

Musical theatre

Yakshagana a musical drama from India
Music and theatre have always had a close relationship. .Musical theatre is a form of theatre combining music, songs, dance routines, and spoken dialogue.^ For an achievement to be considered in the Original Score or Original Song category, the principal music writer(s) for a feature film must submit an official music submission form by 5 p.m.

Theatrical philosophy

There is a variety of philosophies, artistic processes, and theatrical approaches to creating plays and drama. Some are connected to political or spiritual ideologies, and some are based on purely "artistic" concerns. .Some processes focus on a story, some on theatre as event, and some on theatre as catalyst for social change.^ Loosely speaking, if a story doesn't have some kind of "what if" aspect that can't be removed from the story without significantly changing the story, and if the story isn't in some way possible in our multiverse, it isn't science fiction.

According to Aristotle's seminal theatrical critique Poetics, there are six elements necessary for theatre: Plot, Character, Idea, Language, Music, and Spectacle.[13] .The 17th century Spanish writer Lope de Vega wrote that for theatre one needs "three boards, two actors, and one passion".[14] Others notable for their contribution to theatrical philosophy are Konstantin Stanislavski, Antonin Artaud, Bertolt Brecht, Orson Welles, Peter Brook, and Jerzy Grotowski.^ Academy board members serve three-year terms, while officers serve one-year terms, with a maximum of four consecutive terms in any one office.

.Konstantin Stanislavski is considered to be the father of theater technique, as he was the first person to ever write about it, and the majority of modern western theatre theory is derived from Stanislavski's "system" in one form or another.^ (This is a major theme of modern postcolonial theory.

The Carré Theatre in Amsterdam, the Netherlands
In order to put on a piece of theatre, both a theatre company and a theatre venue are needed. .When a theatre company is the sole company in residence at a theatre venue, this theatre (and its corresponding theatre company) are called a resident theatre or a producing theatre, because the venue produces its own work.^ Each of the correspondents works with four producers for one week a month; the producers each have three weeks to get ready for their "on" week.
