Theatre has been a very important aspect of the indo-pak society for a very very long time,to be a bit more accurate its been around since the start of civilization in the Sub-Continent.Theatre can be traced back to the times of the vedic Aryans. In those times theatre was part of the daily life,it was the only source of entertainment.Peolpe used dress up as animals and some used to dress up as hunters and they used to act out various legends and stories from their expedition. As civilisation progressed so did theater along with it.In such a simple and crude manner did the theatre originate in India about 3500 years back in the Indo-Aryan states of Rig Vedic times.Theatre (from French "théâtre", from Greek "theatron", θέατρον, meaning "place of seeing") is the branch of the performing arts defined as simply as what "occurs when one or more human beings, isolated in time and/or space, present themselves to another or others." By this broad definition, theatre has existed since the dawn of man, as a result of human tendency for story telling. Since its inception, theatre has come to take on many forms, often utilizing elements such as speech, gesture, music, dance, and spectacle, combining the other performing arts, often as well as the visual arts, into a single artistic form. Modern Western theatre is dominated by realism, although many other forms, including classical and experimental forms, as well as Eastern forms, are frequently performed.
