Abstract:

Resurrecting long-vanished places of performance, this video uses state-of-the-art graphics to conduct vivid interactive tours--from the earliest sacred spaces to the proscenium arch theater most audiences recognize today. Beginning with the most rudimentary of theaters--an open plot of ground which the Greeks called a theatron or "seeing space"--the virtual-reality archaeology of this program illustrates in stunning detail how that idea evolved over the centuries. Professor Richard Beacham of King's College London guides viewers through the Theatre of Epidaurus and the Lycurgian, Hellenistic, and Roman manifestations of the Theatre of Dionysus.
