A History of Performing Arts

A History of Performing Arts

Acting isn’t just a job for us- it’s a way of life.  We put on performances to celebrate life and imagination.  Our goal is to thrill future audiences, inspire them, and revel with them.  We also want to bring more awareness to the acting scene, and remind people that there is more to telling great stories, than just going to the movies.Recently, I and several of my colleagues were asked why we decided to become actors.  It wasn’t an easy question to compartmentalize, even there is no other profession I think I would rather be doing.  That’s because there is not one story or one aspect to theatre that I identify with- I love it all.  I also know that in this regard, I am not alone.  My comrades are like-minded, and we all come from a long line of devoted stage actors.

New Shows to Look Out For

With October just around the corner, everyone is getting geared up for Halloween.  We’re no different here at the British Shakespeare Company, and although most of us don’t have harvests to celebrate these days, it’s still an exciting time.  The weather is cooling off, and people are staying out of doors before the winter chill sets in.  Here within the company, we’re using the opportunity to flex our proverbial, and prosthetic claws.  That’s why all this month, we’ll be putting on performances from some of the most celebrated penny dreadful novels, to bring some horror in people’s lives.

What’s in a name?  If you’re asking about us, then I would remind you that Shakespeare is in our name; after all, we are the British Shakespeare Company.  While we don’t restrict ourselves exclusively to the tales spun by the bard, we would be remiss if we didn’t take a moment or two to explain our appreciation of William Shakespeare.

Theatre Companies Are Using YouTube These Days For Many Reasons

 

The world of the theatre is a time-honoured tradition that deserves to be shared with as many people as possible. YouTube has made it easier than ever before for people to experience the theatre. Today’s many performance companies are using the site to their benefit. This entails more than just getting the word out to a larger audience. It’s also about explaining just what it is about the theatre performances a company has to offer that makes them as special as they truly can be.

What Is the Theatre Like?

Many of the top videos that such performance companies will upload onto YouTube include ones that express the majestry and beauty of the stage. These videos will show scenes from live performances and stories about the plays that they will partake in.

Many videos will also entail the performers as they discuss their inspirations and what it is about the art form that they love so much. People use these ideas to express the joys of working in the field and how it can really be amazing to watch a show in any event.

Promote Different Events

YouTube has been a popular site for promotional purposes. This is especially the case with theatre companies. They will often post videos promoting the many plays that they are hosting as well as any tours that they are going on. They will talk about the plays that they are performing and why they are so interested in them. Sometimes special reviews of these plays will be incorporated into their videos.

These videos may also talk about how some of the performances that they are going into are unique. Many will talk about the variants that may be introduced in some classic plays, for instance. Stories about the unique atmosphere that a stage show is going to present may also be covered. Anything that profiles what it is about such a show that will make it stand out is always going to be encouraged in any video.

They Showcase the Performers

Sometimes it is the performers who can make centuries-old plays stand out and feel like new again. Many YouTube marketing plans that some theatre companies may use will showcase these performers as it’s a part of YouTube marketing that places an emphasis on individuals. These can include many people including not only the lead stars of a show but also newcomers to the scene.

These individuals will be profiled based on not only their prior experiences but also from the inspirations that they hold dear to them. Many of the best performers in the world of theatre are heavily inspired by those around them or by the characters that they portray. They are devoted to giving their best performances every night.

As a place that can cover many topics relating to the arts, YouTube really is a fascinating spot to explore when it comes to promotional purposes. YouTube can provide anyone with access to some of the best videos about the theatre that anyone can see. These not only promote different touring events to the masses but also showcase just why the theatre is so important to see.
