Transcript of Untitled Prezi

Theatre emerged from myth, ritual, and ceremony.
At the early Greek festivals, the actors, directors, and dramatists were all the same person. Later, only three actors could be used in each play.
The two types of plays performed were tragedies and comedies.
Most tragedies are based on mythology.
Roman theatre derived from different religious festivals.
The Church was actually instrumental in reviving theatre in the Middle Ages.
Sometimes Bible stories were dramatized. The most popular Bible stories dramatized was the story of Mary visiting Christ's tomb to discover his resurrection. Daniel in the lion's den, Lazarus raised from the dead, and the conversion of St. Paul were other popular stories that were dramatized.
The first written down "play" is known as the Regularis Concordia by Ethelwold, Bishop of Winchester.
The most popular play of the 16th century was called
The Spanish Tragedy
written by Thomas Kyd.

William Shakespeare is known as the greatest dramatist of all time.
He was involved in all aspects of theatre more than any other writer in his time.
He wrote 37plays- histories, tragedies, and comedies. He also wrote 154 works that we know of.
He was born on April 23, 1564, and also died on the same date, only in 1616, when he was 52.
He wrote about 10% of the most quoted lines ever written or spoken in English. A very popular quote that many people know comes from the tragedy called Hamlet. The main character, named Hamlet, says "To be or not to be, that is the question."
There are over 80 variations recorded for the spelling of his name.
His plays are made up of a total of 884,429 words.
He introduced about 3,000 words to the English language, and used over 7,000 words only once in all of his plays
People have been creating art for thousands of years. Art was used to decorate the homes and palaces of many people in the past. Art helps us discover more of what life was like then.
The History of
Dance has been dated back all the way into Bible times. Their are many types of dance. Some commonly known types of dance are, Ballet, Tap, Jazz, Lyrical, and Hip Hop. Their is also traditional dances native to specific countries.
We created a little skit with some "Shakespeare Lingo" in it.

Paintings have gone from people having them in their homes and palaces to being in the museums where people go to see some of the paintings that people would have had in their homes. Many famous paintings are in museums.
Famous Paintings
Two famous paintings are the Mona Lisa by Leonardo da Vinci and Water Lillies by Claude Monet.
People have been using pottery even before it was an official art. They used it out of need instead of for decoration. Now people do not need pottery like they used to. It is easier to create pottery than it was, now we have pottery wheels and different tools.
Dancing Ballet

Dancing En Pointe is included in ballet, where instead
of using your toes as a base, you are basically balancing completely on your toes. This is very painful for dancers and can cause blood blisters and more on your feet. But, over time you get used to it and callouses cover the marks. Ballet is very well known for possible injuries along with that such as snapping your arcelis tenden. (don't know how to spell that) You must also be very limber because you need to balance all your weight. Ballet is mainly focused on grace and all around beauty.
Tap dance is believed to have begun in the mid 1800's. It is also an important root in dances like Juba dance, English Lancashire Clog dancing, and most notably Irish stepdancing. Tap dancers make frequent use of syncopation. Choreography typically starts on the eighth or first beatcount. Another aspect of tap dancing is improvisation.
The term "Jazz" was first applied to a style of music and dance during World War I. Jazz in a dance form, however, originates from the vernacular dances of Africans when they were brought to the Americas on slave ships. This dance form developed alongside jazz music in New Orleans in the early 1900s. Beginning in the 1930s and continuing through the 1960s, Jazz dance transformed from this vernacular form into a theatre-based performance form of dance that required a highly trained dancer.
