The origins of theatre arts date back to Ancient Greece, where the mythology, literature, and philosophy reflected the conceptualizations of world creation. People were trying to find answers to the eternal questions about the meaning of existence, watching and analyzing the art and dramatics. Despite the turmoil of different historical eras, the theater still exists. The ingenuity of the Renaissance, the inconsistency and fervor of modern times, the materiality and formalism of contemporary history have brought the variety to the theatrics. Being in constant contact with the audience, the theater plays a formative and educational role, with its influence on the collective consciousness becoming more important than the individual one.
The modern theater is an emblem for a certain system of cultural ideas. The impact of historical periods is presented on the stage in symbolic form, but at the same time they retain their main characteristics. Human characters, expectations and views take their shapes in the theater arts. The mission of the theater has always been the preservation of cultural values and their transmission from one generation to another. Historical turbulence, searches, positivity and absurdities of democracy and globalization, with their dual logic, are the phenomena that affect the modern theater. The task of the contemporary theater is helping the theatergoer to open a comprehensive vision of the society and oneself.
