Articles about Entertaiment

The word “entertain” is related to the medieval Latin verb intertenere, based on the Indo-European root ten, meaning “stretch.” It suggests the idea of extending or stretching something. From this perspective, entertainments can be adapted to any scale of activity or audience: from an individual choosing pre-recorded products for personal enjoyment; to a banquet adapted for two; to parties of various sizes; to non secular pageants and rites; to performances intended for thousands, and even for a global population. Entertainment is an evolving art form that also has a powerful capacity for cross media and transformational change.
