ANCIENT GREEK HISTORY OF THEATER

Theater is the primary way of revealing peoples deeper feelings. Everything started when, a participant in the mysteries dedicated to God Dionysos, began talking with the crowd, playing God. This dialog between God and people, created theater and the art of acting. Our ancestors built theaters in a way to resemble an upturned bowl, like the half of an egg, because they believed that half of it (the egg) is on earth and the rest, the invisible part, is in the sky. Through acting, a union of the two half takes place and humans unite with divine.
