This genre seeks to experiment with sounds in a completely different way than conventional music does. Everything from the audience to musical notation is reconsidered and presented in a new, original manner. It is an important part of the perception and development of music. As musical concepts and technology change, experimental music will continue to modify and broaden the definition of music.
Thesis statement The aims and intentions of this essay is to discuss and evaluate the ways of how social change exists in applied theatre in non-traditional settings, as well as the educational, social and therapeutic mission of this change. We will do this discussion by under-taking an evaluation of theatre companies such as Crag Rats and organizations which work under Open Clasp theatre, Forum and Reminiscence theatre. Theatre for social change is a non-traditional theatre developed in marginalized communities and it can be different in the area of scripting and polished improvisation. It can be applied across many cultures and tradition over time and people use the stage as a space and place to tell their stories and their lives-express concerns. It is called applied theatre because it can be applicable in non-traditional settings such us popular and documentary theatre, theatre in education, theatre of the oppressed, theatre for health education, theatre for development, prison theatre, community based-theatre, museum theatre and reminiscence theatre.
Interactive art is a form of art that privileges experience over static objects. Taking the advantage of the new technologies, interactive digital art can create innovative ways to stimulate and engage audience to interact with the dynamic art-system . However, it is necessary more empirical research on translating or transposing the essence of artistic expression from an interactive traditional art installation to an interactive digital art.

A community is a living organism that must ebb and flow with the tides of change. Performance is a way for new issues and ideas to be brought to the forefront, ready for discussion. Community performance can include political debates, social commentaries disguised as autobiographical self-debasing monologues as well as Renaissance Faires with their celebratory and informative performances. Each example can be said to include elements of Brechtian Alienation, even if they are not, perhaps, the performances that Brecht himself had in mind. However, the performances are important in that they force us to examine our own place within both the world of the theater and within our respective realities.

Costume in this scene is an important component of mise-en-scène, as it displays the contrast between Morpheus and Neo’s characters. Piatti-Farnell (2013) stresses the symbolic value of costume in cinema, and its effect on characterisation and the relationship between a character and its audience. Morpheus once lived as a human in the matrix, he wears mostly black, including full length a leather trench coat, mirrored sunglasses and black combat boots. Street (2001) talks of costumes power to make individuals stand out and to show an individual’s affiliation to a group. Although we are first meeting Morpheus, we are able to establish a lot about his character.
Response Essay “Theatre makes us think about power and the way our society works and it does this with a clear purpose, to make a change.” The ideas of Bertolt Brecht (1898-1965) changed the theatre in many ways. Brecht along with Erwin Piscator developed the style of Epic theatre style contrasting to previous accepted styles. Presentational in form, Epic theatre is a vehicle for social comment through techniques such as: alienation, historification, eclectic influences (highly Asian), constructivism in scenery, disjointed and illogical scene placement, ordinary clothing and lighting, the use of music to detach the audience from emotion, placards and signs and projected images. Didactic in nature Brecht’s works aim to challenge the audience to assess socially accepted norms and educate them to injustices often overlooked by the public. The Caucasian Chalk Circle (Brecht, 1944) written during the time of Nazi Germany occupation has a clearly political and social focus.
Shakespeare’s use of role playing and metatheatre in 1 Henry IV and A Midsummer Night’s Dream call attention to the nature of theatre. Not only the nature of the play we are watching, but also the play of life. As the audience, we have a broader perspective. As if we are allowed to see through a different lens. We inhabit a world that is very different from the one we live and yet in some ways we see ourselves in the characters (Bedford).
The utilization of these two theories in the field of film generation and distribution is critically examined in this essay. Such assessment helps the author to come up with a hybrid theory whose concepts build on the weaknesses of the other two. The applicability of the new theoretical model, dubbed the lingual theory, will be tested against a real life scenario in contemporary media. The Semiotics Theory of Communication The theoretical structure is developed from the study of signs and their related processes and applications in communication. According to Friedman and Thellefsen (2011), the theory is closely related to the linguistic model of analyzing the structure of a particular language.
