A fill light, in theatre or stage lighting, is just another name for a flood light. Flood lights generally consist of a bright halogen lamp, housed with an aluminum reflector hehind it, to reflect the unfocused, soft light against a backdrop or a wall. They are normally found suspended from a batten (in a theater) or from a truss beam (generally in a stage setup), or simply found placed on the floor, aiming up towards the subject. Gels can also be used to change the colour that is spilled by the wide-angle light, or 'luminaire' as refered to in theatre.
Theater has borrowed ideas from many fields. The term fill light comes from cinematography, where the system of lighting often uses a "key" or primary source of light on a subject, and a fill light for the set, background, shadow fill, etc. The contrast between key and fill in intensity and color, as well as the angle and intensity of the key light help set the mood.
In theater, the same lights are sometimes used for key and fill lights, but the relative intensity can be varied from scene to scene.
Theatrical designers often use a key/fill system in thinking about lighting a scene, but it is only one of the many possible systems.
a moment in which changes something that plays a big outcome in the end.
Like that moment near the middle or end of Act 2 in any film/play where plots are twisted, characters' motivations and secrets are revealed, leading to new realisations, different perspectives, and new plans. There's a whole section on film and plot techniques in this textbook 'Manipulate Your Marker' by Mitchell Grotte - I found it super helpful when trying to analyse and define pivotal scenes.
The proscenium type theatre is surrounded by the proscenium arch, so is it's name, and it originated during the Italian Renaissance, in the 16th century (or 1500s)
* Involvement and concern for the characters in a play
Considering that there were no electric lights or other ways to light a large stage or auditorium, all plays performed in ancient Greece were done in an outside theater during the day. Scenes meant to be performed at night where shown by several characters holding torches.
The tragedies were performed as a trilogy - three consecutive sequential plays, followed by a satyr play followed by a comedy, so it was an all-day event.
* To create a suspenseful atmosphere without using traditional horror conventions.
* To guide the main character.
* To comfort the main character.
Stanislavski wanted his audiences to feel deep, authentic emotions generated by the actors onstage, which is why he trained his actors to consider their own lives and to step into the skins of their characters in an effort to access those deeper, more complex, and more resonant emotions, which they could then pass on to an audience.
The curtains provide attractive sound deadening so that it doesn't echo in the theater. Some theaters just use other sound absorbing methods but the curtains are something of a hold-over from the older theaters where plays and concerts were performed in the past and have a nice appearance.

They called it a Theatron because in Greek this means 'Viewing place'. Many things were viewed in the theatron besides plays...such as public meetings and other such spectacles.

Women were never allowed to perform in Shakespeare's plays because at that time, women were underestimated. People always thought that men should do things because women were made to carry babies and be the house wife, this changed, however, over time.
Hope this helps... SS17 <3Another PerspectiveWomen were respected and acting was considered to be a vulgar activity. Rather than being "underestimated", women were held in such high regard that acting would have been considered to be truly unbecoming of a woman.
Only the low classes ever considered any of the theatrical arts, and acting was beneath most of polite society.

A theatrical wall is called a "flat". There are three primary types of flats. They are as follows:
Hollywood Flat - A flat where the framing is on edge, making it a wider and sturdier flat. Has a hard skin on it. Great for sturdy, fairly permanent walls - not advisable for flats that need to fly in or out.
Soft Broadway Flat - A flat where the framing is on face, making it a thinner, less sturdy flat. Has a fabric skin on it (usually muslin). Easily paintable and very light weight. Great for flats that fly in and out and do not need to hold weight.
Hard Broadway Flat - A flat where the framing is on face, but the skin is a thin plywood, rather than fabric. Still great for flats that fly in and out - can support a bit of weight if you need to dress it with props, etc.
The advantages are that large number of people can watch and that it fits well the shape of many buildings. The actors can make their entrance from the wings enabling quick changes and suprise entrances.
However, the action is somewhat remote from the audience who can get more of the atmosphere and closer to the players in an arrangement such as a thrust stage or theatre in the round.
Yes it does. It allows you to express emotions you feel in an everyday life and helps you learn different feelings so they may be used again in another show or performance.
