Discover the techniques and conventions associated with Greek theater. This PowerPoint and workbook provide an introduction to the notions of chorus, masks and dithyrambs which are associated with this distinct period in theater history. The soundtrack and links in the PowerPoint help illustrate the stagecraft of this form of theater while the practical activities in the workbook allow students of the stage to explore those concepts in a very tactile and meaningful way. In many ways, Western theater owes its concepts of tragedy, comedy and satyr to the foundations established by the ancient Greeks.
