background image Theatre notes Defining theatre- word refers to the art form and the space in which it occurs Theatron- the seeing place Theatre- “the act of seeing and being seen” Requires actor, audience, and space Theatrical spaces: proscenium arch (arch is like the frame around the stage) (audience seating
in straight lines) (Two dimensional) 
Proscenium thrust- (Stage goes out into the audience) (Three of four sides 
are surrounded by the audience) (actors have to be more precise since 
people are so close) (more natural movements than arch) (audience is more 
involved and gathering a similar experience) (design process changes for 
changing sets)
Black box theatre- (a smaller space typically for experimental use) 
(changeable seating) (black for better lighting) 
Arena stage- (audience 360 degrees around stage)  What is being seen? Aristotle defined theatre with the word mimesis- the imitation of human action Parallels with other collective experiences Why do we go what to we get out of it?
