What is Entertaiment?


Entertaiment means gratification or pleasure, which is often associated with amusement. However, entertainment can also have a serious intention as in the case of ceremonies, religious festivals or satire. The concept of entertainment has developed over time and it may be adapted to any scale: from a private movie for two; through a dinner party or banquet; a performance intended for thousands; or an activity adapted into a global competition. The capacity of some forms of entertainment to cross over different media is demonstrated by the way in which a story like Scheherazade from the professional storytelling tradition has been retold for orchestral music, film and even an innovative video game.
