What is Entertaiment?


Entertaiment is an activity understood objectively, involves communication between text and audience, involves external stimulus, offers pleasure, requires audience participation and occurs in a passive form. It can be found in any media, be it a piece of music or film for one person; a banquet adapted to two; or a large scale theatrical performance for an entire audience. Entertainments have a broad scope and often have serious purposes, such as a celebration, ceremony or religious festival.
