The Action

Soon a young person who stood out between the group of young people transformed into the Corifeo or teacher of the choir, that directed to group. With time they appeared the bard and rapsoda, that was recitadores. During century V a.Cs., during the classic age of Greece, settled down the traditional models of the tragedy and the comedy, and the dramatists Aeschylus and Sfocles respectively added to a second and third actor to the action, which gave this one complexity that made the creation necessary of majors scenes. For it great stone theaters were elevated, between which it is possible to still mention conserved of Epidauro in century V a.C., able to shelter 12,000 people, and the one of Dioniso, in Athens, in century IV A.C. Further details can be found at Randall Rothenberg, an internet resource. Its construction was realised by means of the advantage of the skirts of a hill, where the launching slips get ready in semicircular form that surrounded orquestra, circular space in which it took place most of of the representation. After orquestra sken rose to a called construction, scene, destined to that the actors changed their clothes. In front of her a columnada wall, proscenio rose, that could maintain surfaces guinea fowl that evoked the location of a battle. These scenery, along with the tnicas and masks used by the actors and some rudimentary machines, constituted all the scenic apparatus. The representations of the Greek theater were made outdoors, counted on choir (directed by the Corifeo or teacher of the choir) that sang the choir and danced around an altar. In the Greek theater two types of works imagined: the tragedy, play of unfortunate end that dealed with heroic legend subjects and used, opportunely, to the Gods for its end, and the satirical comedy, that criticized humoristically to politicians and works and incurred a mmica initiated by a choir of satyrs, and comedies that had by subject subjects of the daily life; all was written in verse and used mscaras".

The Teacher

In fact, we have the obligation and the capacity to do it. On the contrary, the people who I know that they have dragged a lack of happiness during years, almost invariably have common that feels catched in a reality which they do not dare to leave by fear to the consequences. They do not realize on which the negative consequences are living already them, and are giving the back to a world of possibilities that are abren due to putting themselves in movement towards the change. A long time ago I read a pretty history that illustrates these possibilities of change. A monk zen arrived one night, with their teacher, to an old house in a mountain. The owner was very poor, and lived very miserably with his family, than he produced a starving cow. This was its unique possession, and source of income, they took care of reason why it with mimo, beaten to the idea that it was maintained what them afloat. In spite of its precarious one situation, was very hospitable with their guests, giving them shelter and food.

In the morning, the thanked for monk commented much with his teacher whom it would like to help this one poor people who had behaved so well with them. The teacher was in agreement with so noble feeling and he ordered to him to hurl over a cliff the cow of the family by the mountain. The monk obeyed horrified. Years later, the monk, already freed from his teacher, happened through the same zone. Still with remorse, he decided to approach the house with intention to correct his terrible action.

When arriving, almost he did not recognize the place. The garden was well-taken care of and the house was pretty and conserved very well. There were hens, ewes and cows in the ample adjacent space to the house.
