    So in casting the battle as a "patriotic" victory, Herodotus does not alter its outcome or things well-known about the Greeks' defeat, but he does slant the evidence to make the Greeks seem more heroic and the battle, in the long run, less calamitous. Often used as a sky backing to a traditional set, or as the main backing for a dance piece etc. Given that, we can do little more than add another voice to the noise and confusion, the din and dissonance that is the"messy" business of history. Most Box Offices are now computerised, and offer phone reservations.

    Upstage This refers to the part of the stage that is the furthest distance from the audience. What it meant originally and how it came to be a technical term for a type of scholarship is well known. That is, they put together a winning case by intriguing their audience with their presentation of the facts and inducing them to buy into their view of the past. The audience looks through this frame into the dramatic world being created on stage.

    Often used as a sky backing to a traditional set, or as the main backing for a dance piece etc. His premise that through the investigation of former times it was possible to see the origins of current events still grounds much of the study of history today. The American composer John Cage said that "theatre takes place all the time wherever one is. There are several forms of irony. The truth is, it is not Euripides but we who are uncomfortable with Greek choruses because communal songs such as these, when presented on stage, seem foreign and unwieldy to us.

A Stile is a side or vertical piece within a flat. Often shortened to ASM. The same difficulty exists in assessing whether Native American rituals, such as the buffalo dance, constitute "theatre.

No matter how much Herodotus may wish it were not so, he cannot change the fact that it was in many ways a devastating defeat for his side. In sum, if history, it must be granted, does not present on the surface an unadulterated record of what really happened in the past, it can be an excellent vehicle for the truth.

Nevertheless, if it is impossible to be a perfect historian, one can at least address personal biases and as far as possible try to distance them from one's work.

That discounts the other parts of the Greek theatre where the performance, for the most part, takes place: the orchestra dancing areathe skene the tent behind the stageand the parodoi the side entrances into the orchestra.

So if there is little hope we can be good historians, what can we do to be better ones? The conundrum of creating history was well articulated by an Arabic philosopher of history, Ibn Kahldun CE.

The German equivalent term is operafolie. If so inclined, one could be even more pessimistic than Ibn Kahldun and, as some modern behaviorists do, say that certain biases are coded into us by nature and that we are limited in our perspective of history merely by being human.

Could he, for instance, have made the Greeks the winners of a battle, when there were veterans in his audience who had been at that battle and knew the Greeks did not win it?

Auditorium The space within the theatre where the audience sits or stands for the duration of a performance. A Rail is a horizontal batten within a flat. But this is to overlook the importance that the chorus played in Greek theatre. Others do not see trends at all but view all things as singular and unique.

They are typically out of the sight of audience members. No matter how much Herodotus may have wished to re-tally some defeat as a victory, he could not have changed any battle's ultimate outcome.

The American composer John Cage said that "theatre takes place all the time wherever one is. The truth is, all facets of society involve theatre and are integral to the study of theatre history, a daunting but unavoidable prospect.

In particular, when his heroine Antigone in one notorious speech ; see below, Chapter 11 seems to undo all she has said before about why she defied the king and buried her brother, her speech is so out of character with the tone of her earlier ones that many scholars believe it can only have been appended to Sophocles' tragedy by some later person.

It includes the space in the wings as well as the dressing rooms. Because many historians do not spend their time uncovering new evidence, they are not really detectives so much as lawyers who work at assembling a story that makes the data appear to make sense. This process of assembling data to create some larger picture of the past is conducted through a process called inference, which involves the evaluation of data in such a way that one can make general conclusions about the past and produce a cogent vision of what actually happened long ago.

Conversely, liturgy and ritual share much in common with theatre and drama.Theatre definition, theater.
