What Is Entertaiment?


Entertaiment refers to a range of activities that are considered fun and amusing. These may include watching a performance (as in the case of theatre or sports); playing games and participating in play with other children (8); or even adult recreation like watching television or playing video games (5). This study builds academically accepted and systematically built entertainment definitions, which are based on product, experience, culture and communication notions (9).

The story of Scheherazade – the Persian professional storytelling tradition of a woman who saved her life by telling stories – has demonstrated the ability to cross media, inspiring musicians such as Rimsky-Korsakov or Ravel to compose orchestral pieces; directors like Pasolini to make film adaptations; and innovative video games.
