An art form that takes the viewer to a world of euphoric bliss, where they forget all their problems and wish it could last forever. Whether it is a movie, a concert or a dance performance, it is all about taking the audience on a journey to a fantasy land.
Defining entertainment is difficult as it encompasses various forms of activity. However, Bates and Ferri (2010) define entertainment as an activity understood objectively, which communicates between text and audience from external stimulus, offers pleasure, requires an audience and is in a passive form. The word is derived from the Latin intertenere and Indo-European root ten, meaning “to hold inside.” See also ENTERTAINMENT NEWS.
