LESSON 2 – DIFFERENT BETWEEN DRAMA AND THEATER
Drama and theatre are often used interchangeably, but they have some key differences. Here are the main differences between drama and theatre:
1. Definition – Drama refers to a literary form or genre, specifically a written work that is meant to be performed, while theatre refers to the art form or medium of live performance itself.
2. Text and Performance – Drama primarily exists as a written text, whereas theatre is the live enactment of that text in front of an audience. Drama can be read and appreciated on its own, while theatre requires actors and a stage to bring it to life.
3. Writing and Production – Drama focuses on the written content, including plot, characters, dialogue, and themes. Theatre, on the other hand, involves the entire production process, including directing, acting, set design, lighting, costumes, and sound.
4. Medium – Drama can exist in various forms, such as a play, screenplay, or script for a film or television show. Theatre, however, is typically associated with live performances on stage.
5. Audience Interaction – In drama, the audience’s interaction is limited to reading and interpreting the text. In theatre, the audience becomes an active participant by watching, reacting, and responding to the performance in real time.
6. Collaborative Process – While drama can be written by a single author, theatre is a highly collaborative art form that involves a team of artists, including playwrights, directors, actors, designers, technicians, and stage managers, working together to create a production.
