BeschreibungEmphasizing the political nature of Greek tragedy, as theatre of, by and for the "polis," Rush Rehm Characterizes Athens as a "performance culture," one in which the theatre stood alongside other public forums as a place to confront matters of import and moment. In treating the various social, religious and practical aspects of tragic production, he shows how these elements promoted a vision of the theatre as integral to the life of the city--a theatre whose focus was on the audience.
