Drama and theatre originated during ancient Athens, and gradually developed during the 6th century B.C. through performances to honor the god Dionysus. It is considered to be a visual display of a composition or prose through a live performance of dialogue or narration. Catering to the visual sense, drama was mainly used in religious rituals, but has since then moved into a wide range of small or large productions of all narrations for theatre, television and movies. Originating from Late Latin, “play, drama” and Greek (genitive dramatos), “play, action, deed.”
