What is Entertaiment?


Entertaiment is a broad term used to describe a wide variety of activities, hobbies and pursuits. It can include sports, music and films, as well as traditional forms of theatre and dance. Often, entertainment is a form of play for children. It can also involve learning through structured activity, such as a formal education, or activities that mimic adult behaviour like work and social interaction (8). The classic story of Scheherazade, in the Persian professional storytelling tradition, has been adapted many times for different media: it inspired Rimsky-Korsakov, Ravel and Szymanowski to create orchestral works; Pasolini made a film version; and there is even an innovative video game.
