THEATER

Come of our Greek theaters were big and could 15000 people unlike this one. The seats were built into the side of a hill in a semi circle formation.In the middle was a flat spot that the men or the boys's performed on called the orchestra.They have many different mask's with different meanings for different purposes.Our actors would change in a hut off to the side of the stage called the skein there are different types of play's like tragedies,comedy's and satyr.A crane used to put actors on side or main buildings. For Athens theater was a worship to the gods. Theater was started by the chorus from the singing dancing and as part of the plays know in days. The founder of our theater plays was a legendary man named Sisy Phus.

Greek fashion

Hello my fellow Greek citizens im here to tell you all about our Greek fashion. First Im going to start off with women fashion.So they mostly wore a traditional dress called the Doric Chiton.it is a at is twice the distance of the elbow.It was folded in a half horizontally and wrapped around the body.Then we have Lonic Chiton it is a large rectangle like the Doric but it is a little wider and it is a little shorter.Its is usually closed at the top with a button or with a seem.Our Greek women wore a thing called a narrow Himation it went around the chest.There are many ways to wear the dress.None of the women wore hats but they did wear jewelry especially earrings. In place of hats they wore their hair in many different styles. Now we are on men's fashion. Mostly they wore shorter versions of the Lonic Chiton it usually came down to the middle thighs.If it was cold they will usually wear a cloak.Also in the cold they would wear a fabric that was formed into a rectangle then they wrapped it around them self. Soldiers wore a short Chiton with amour on usually a breast plate and greaves to protects shins and they carried a sword or a spear. So that's it for our Greek fashion.
