Transcript: Politicians use the same aspects of theater as actors do. They tie the concept and crew members together to produce a "show" or campaign. They give speeches (monologues) and say what they can to please the voters (audience) so they can win their vote. Crew Members By: Katelyn Blackwell Action! Politicians are like actors because they follow some of the same practices that actors do. History of Politics in America There were numerous political parties in the U.S. political system up until the time of the Civil War. Now there are two main political parties, with some minor ones running beside them: The Democratic Party The Republican Party A Political Action Committee in Wisconsin supports the citizens' right to bear arms. Concept Theater, just like anything else, can be found when you least expect it. Politics: A Theatrical Presentation Politicians come up with a "concept" or their base for their campaign. They then research their concepts so they will have information to use in their debates. Bill Clinton promising to lower the national debt. In Conclusion For example, George W. Bush's campaign dealt a lot with National Security and Foreign Policies after the attack on September 11, 2001. Politicians have the support of Special Interests Groups, PACs, and Lobbyists.

Greek Theater Background

Transcript: Plot Sophocles Masks amplified voices like megaphones Actors wore elevated shoes Actors on platform Skene – area behind platform, dressing and backdrop Below stage- orchestra (dancing place for chorus of fifteen) No more than three characters appeared on stage Chorus provided necessary background information Drama developed from celebrations honoring Dionysus, the Greek god of wine and fertility In March, citywide celebration with sacrifices, prizes, processions, 3 days of drama Thespis is considered the "father of drama" Foil -A foil is another character in a story who contrasts with the main character, usually to highlight one of their attributes. Aside - a remark or passage by a character in a play that is intended to be heard by the audience but unheard by the other characters in the play Monologue - an extended speech spoken by one person. Soliloquy - A type of monologue that isn't heard by the other characters. Is meant to reflect the characters inner thoughts. They named him “Oedipus” which means “swollen-foot” because of his injured ankles. As a grownup, Oedipus was accused by a drunken guest of not being his father’s son, so he traveled to consult the Delphic oracle. The oracle prophesied that Oedipus would kill his father and beget children by his mother Horrified, he vowed to never go back to Corinth Aristotle believed that plot was the primary element in tragedy, and the plot must follow these four principles: 1) The plot must be a whole, with a beginning, middle, and end 2) The plot must be internally whole, with incidents relating to each other and not interrupted by a deus ex machina or completed by a coincidence 3) The plot must reflect a serious treatment in terms of its complexity and universal appeal; and 4) The plot should not only include a change of fortune for the central character, but also some reversal or surprise and a recognition within that character of his/her changed status that brings about knowledge. Tragedy Tragedy dealt with the big themes of love, loss, pride, the abuse of power and the fraught relationships between man and gods. What does the content of Greek plays teach you about their societal values? Greek Theater Background A convention used in Greek tragedy after Sophocles for lowering or lifting actors playing gods by means of a crane on the skene (stage building that serves as dressing rooms). The Latin phrase deus ex machina, “a god from a machine,” is now used for any quick means of resolving a plot. Dramatic - Dramatic irony is when the words and actions of the characters of a work of literature have a different meaning for the reader than they do for the characters. Situational - when the outcome is contradictory to what is expected. Verbal - when a person says or writes one thing and means another. The person is aware. "Oedipus Complex" "Electra Complex" Oedipus as a Tragic Hero Types of Tragedy Because of a prophecy that their son would kill his father, Laius and Jocasta, King and Queen of Thebes, gave their infant to a shepherd with orders that he be left on a mountainside to die. The shepherd, after having pinned the baby’s ankles together, took pity on him gave him instead to a Corinthian shepherd, who presented him to Polybus and Merope, King and Queen of Corinth, a childless couple who adopted him as their own. 1. Unity of Time - action takes place within 24hrs. 2. Unity of Place - Action was limited to one setting (violence and death took place off stage) 3. Unity of Action - no subplots, focus on one main character Basics Drama/AP Terms to Know Irony Motifs: Lightness vs. Darkness Sight vs. Blindness Themes: You cannot judge a man until his last day. All men are susceptible to the dangers of pride. The struggle of accepting fate or free will. Comedy Comedy- The first comedies were mainly satirical and mocked men in power for their vanity and foolishness. What does satire mean? “What goes on four legs in the morning, two legs at noon, and three legs in the evening?” Motif - Motifs are images, ideas, sounds or words that help to explain the central idea of a literary work. These will occur throughout the work Theme - A central or dominating idea in a literary work. It is what creates meaning. A work can have more than one theme. For AP level thinking, you need to always be connecting the author's choices back to theme. Focus on how the various characteristics of a work create/support theme. Catastrophe - The resolution of the plot of a tragedy, depicting the final downfall of the protagonist Miasma - An accursed state due to wrongdoings, causes a deathlike atmosphere, often referred to as "pollution" Peripeteia - The reversal of fortune, the moment in a plot when the hero's story takes an unexpected turn, an action has the opposite effect than intended. 1)Prologue - gives background 2)Parodos - chorus makes entrance, gives perspective on what audience has learned * chorus sets mood, emphasizes main themes, foreshadows 3)Episodes-characters engage in
