Theatre or theater is a form of performing art with collaboration of live performers, typically actors or actresses. They present a real or imagined event before a live audience in a specific place, often a stage. The performers communicate via combinations of gesture, speech, song, music, and dance. Elements of the show like painted scenery and lighting are well arranged to add life to the show. The word "theatre" is derived from the Ancient Greek θέατρον (théatron, "a place for viewing"), itself from θεάομαι (theáomai, "to see", "to watch", "to observe").
Modern Western theatre comes from ancient Greece, from which it borrows terminology, genres, and many of its themes, stock characters, and plot elements. Popular writers like Shakespeare and Theatre artist Patrice Pavis has brought revolution to Western theatre.
Why theatres are still important?
1. Theatre enables us to see a different perspective from our own. Theatre promotes us to give power to truth, to take risks and to advocate for new and diverse voices.
2. Theatre makes us feel that we are not alone. Sharing an experience with live actors and live audience members is not only valuable, it’s necessary for human connection. Movies and television don’t have the same intimacy or sense of participation.
3. Theatre means every performance is unique. Although the script may be the same every night, but there is always some variation.
4. Theatre promotes education and literacy. Studies have shown that students who participate in theatre do better in school.
Theatre is considered as the best place to learn and showcase your art talent as you perform in front of LIVE audience. You have no retakes, and almost no scope for mistakes. You have to be to perfect at all shots. You have to remember dialoques as if you are speaking in real life. That is why, many talented artists have spent years on the stage before making it big. In India and worldwide, though bollywood and hollywood are very big industry. Most wonderful artists have made their way from theatres after years of hard work, practice and commitment.
