Building tableaus to represent democracy and the development of the democratic state during Athenian Greece as divided under the four titles:

– Factions
– The Golden Age of Pericles
– The Coming of War
– Defeat

Analysis: The effect of the tableaus on the audience, the intended impression vs. how much more the audience reads into it.

Demos – the people
Cratos – power

‘Of the people, for the people, by the people’

Application: Knowing the history of theatre is important, as well as understanding the the difference between the intended effect of theatre vs. what the audience actually sees — the audience always goes away with more than the original message; it’s impossible to control the message via the medium of theatre.
