What is Entertaiment?


Entertaiment involves recreation at any scale – from an individual selecting private entertainment from a wide range of pre-recorded options to a banquet for two, and from amateur competitions to performances intended for thousands, and now even the global public. The capacity of entertainment to cross media is demonstrated by the way stories such as Scheherazade – an example from the professional storytelling tradition – have inspired a wide variety of orchestral compositions, films and innovative video games.
