Greek Theatre in Modern Day (Ciara)
Impact of Greek Theatre (Destiny)
Greek theater has impacted us in our modern days in arts and entertainment in way that can tell a story, or a picture. And even in today's writing with structures of a story and with areas in school. Greek theater began with an idea of a person and became something big from past to the present and what is going occur next in the future. It all began from Grecian theaters called the City Dionyus the theater was built on mountains so all the audiences can see with parts of the play including orchestra, which today is where the band plays, theatron is still used today as the house or seeing place,also the skene has shaped the wings in which now is where you transition for all the different scenes in a play or event. Today it has shaped today's sports like football, hockey, and more other using the same format as the Greek theater. It has a mojor impact if it wasnt for greek theater we wouldnt have the ideas, people, things that we have today.

Greek Theatre
Greek Theatre started in the year around 700 B.C.

According to a Greek chronicle of the 3rd century BC, Thespis is the first winner of a theatrical award. He takes the prize in the first competition for tragedy, held in Athens in 534 BC.

There was festivals honoring many of their gods. One god, Dionysus, was honored with an unusual festival called the City Dionysia. Ceremonies were a very exciting occasion. They would sing and play in choruses to welcome Dionysus.Dionysus was the god of fertility and wine.

At the early Greek festivals, the actors, directors, and dramatists were all the same person. Later, three people were allowed to be in the play. Soon, non-speaking roles were given in the plays. Because there was a limited number of actors on stage, the chorus evolved into a very active part of the play.

Modern Theatre
-Usually built on a hill so
the audience was able to
see the whole performance
-There was 3 main parts of the theatre;
the orchestra, skene and theatron.
-Performances during this time
were known as tragedies. They were
also called "tragoida" which means
goat song.
So, We are going to be teaching you important information on Greek theatre itself.
-Performances were often
about the meaning of life
and reason for suffering.
-There were 5 main parts to
the plays; the prologue, parados,
episode, stasimon, and exodos.
Types of Ancient Greek Plays (Emily)
Types of Plays: The final three principal dramatic forms in the theatre of classical Greece.
Comedy- Comedies always have happy endings. It was divided into three periods, old comedy, middle comedy, and new comedy. Comedy was suppose to be a mockery of people and situations.
Tragedy- Tragedies always have a tragic endings. It is based on human suffering. The term tragedy refers to a specific tradition of drama that has played a unique and important role historically.
Satyr- These plays were usually short. The performers made fun of the plight of the tragedy's characters. The satyr were mythical half-human, half-goat figures and actors. Few examples of this play survive. They are classified by some authors as tragicomic, or comedy dramas.
-Built in doors, the seating area
is called the House. Where the
actors perform is called the stage.
There is 9 different parts
to the stage.
-The play has to have a plot.
This includes ; exposition,
rising action, conflict, climax,
falling action, and some type
of resolution.
-Death is allowed to be displayed
on stage
-Still uses basic
parts of theatre
-We still use the different
genres of plays, tragedy,
comedy, realism, etc ..
-Built so the whole
audience can see
There are 5 parts to Greek plays;
The Prologue is a short speech
or scene that sets the time
and location of the play. It
also provides the myth of
the play to help the
audience be more familiar
with the plot
The parados is the chorus of
play. It provides background
information through songs and
The Episode is the start to a scene,
usually starting with one or two actors.
A Stasimon follows each episode
with song and dance before
the next episode
The Exodus is the final scene of the play. Everything comes to some srt of conclusion.
We basically still use the same
idea except we use what is
called a plot diagram.
In plays some people got tomatoes thrown at them,because the audience didn't like them or they weren't good. Some characters would laugh or wont stay in character when performing plays.
A long time ago lots of the first class people watched the plays and they would enjoy some of the people that do amazing in there scene and stay in character.
