Theater I: Journal #6 and Notes

#6: What is Theater? and Notes - 10/13

Answer the following questions in your own words:

1) What is theater?  (i.e. What is the performing art known as theater all about?)

2) What is A theater? (i.e. What is the place called theater?)

Notes from today:

Three types of stages and the stage areas...

A proscenium stage has an audience on ONE SIDE.

A thrust stage has an audience on THREE SIDES.

An arena stage (theater-in-the-round) has an audience on ALL SIDES, and is diagrammed like a compass (N, E, W, S, NE, SE, NW, SW, and C) or the face of a clock (digits 1 through 12 and C).
