Post #11 - Starting Off the Project

Assignment: Take a topic from the real world today and relate it to a similar subject in the Egyptian Civilization.

Essential Question I Want to Answer: How were the Egyptians involved in musical(instrumental and vocal) and theatrical events or entertainment, were they religious, and what class of people were allowed to participate in them.

The main thing I want to learn about this topic is how music and theater played a role in the every day lives of the Egyptians. For example, if there were any instruments hand made to be performed or if there were groups of people singing to entertain people, or even to just pass time. Also, during the practice of their religion, I would also like to find out if in between masses or readings there were performances to split up the monotony of the complete mass.

Overall, I would like to present my findings in a way that allow people to hear or listen to what their performances would have comprised of, and give people of our time a good understanding of the performing arts in the Egyptian Civilization.
