Structures in Ancient Greece

One of the structures in Ancient Greece theatre is the skene. The skene is one of the changing rooms and is used to make appearances. It was used to kill the characters because in their culture "killing" characters onstage was wrong.

The scenery in the Ancient Greece theatre.

The skene was also used for the scenery in the theatre. It was used as a scenery tablet. The pinax was also used as a piece of scenery. The Pinax was usually made of stone, wood, and cloth that were drawn on and hung to make scenery.

Ancient greek costumes (costumes, masks, etc.)

There were some masks that would express their feelings. The masks were made out of either linen or cork. So the masks were destroyed by rotting away because the organic material would rot. there were sad masks for tradegy plays and happy and sneering for satyr plays. the shape of the mask would amplify the voice making the voice seem louder. The costumes depended on the play.

How did they used technical theatre during that period

The ancient greek started at the beginning of the day because they had no lights except the torches. They also used accoustics to make the characters seem louder than usual. They also built it ontop of a hill so they did not have to build it like the romans.
