Entertaiment and Technology


Entertaiment is all about giving people pleasure and making them laugh. It’s also about telling stories and playing games. Technology has changed the availability, cost and quality of entertainment products but the principles of storytelling, music, theatre and game are recognisable and have remained the same for centuries. For example, the story of Scheherazade, a professional Persian storyteller who saved her own life by telling fascinating stories, has inspired a number of orchestral works by composers such as Rimsky-Korsakov and Ravel, a film adaptation by director Pasolini and even an innovative video game.
