Transcript of Egyptian Theater
The performances served as ceremonies and rituals. The most important rituals followed the full fertility pattern of a fight, a death and a rebirth. Osris and Horus The egyptians prayed to and believed in
many gods. They payed homage to their
gods with religious ceremonies that we
call theatre today. Egyptian style theater's are based on the traditional and historic elements of ancient Egypt.
The first Egyptian style theater in the U.S was Grauman’s Egyptian theater in Hollywood, California. In Ancient Egyptian theatre costumes are often based on the land of the pharoah.
