Performing Arts

Performing Arts

by Antony Mason

Performing in front of an audience is an ancient art form dating back thousands of years. This could entail recounting stories, telling simple jokes, singing and dancing, or professional acting on stage. Performing Arts looks at the many aspects of performance, from its humble beginnings in early civilizations through to lavish modern-day opera productions. The importance of the audience, props, and special effects are also highlighted. This book goes on to reveal how the invention of film and television have had a powerful effect on performers and audiences.
