POWERPOINT Follow along Fig. 9.1 (p. 250) Know what it is for Don’t know the greek word “paradose” Paradose==parade If the characters have a name they stay on the stage platform There is an orchestra Orchestra is the dancing space Orchestra’s real meaning is a dancing space How does space affecgt performance? Outdoor space Performance is entirely dependent on the weather The sun provides the lighting for the performances Religious nature of the theatre When you read the play don’t imagine it like a movie, it’s more like the chorus moving in a formal way in the large theatre How did they project their voices?
