Cultural Life

Culture is part of life of everybody (fashion, theatre, film, TV, radio, music) What do it come under Culture? Fashion, theatre, film, TV, radio, music etc. The people need culture. They need go to the theatre, they need some various form of dressing. The need pastime in lesuire time. Fashion Thanks to the modern garment industry, people are better dressed now than in the old days. Other advances in technology are impotant too: Manmade fabrics do not crease and you always look neat. Shirts, blouses, jumpers, and dresses from these new materials wash easily. There are several well-known fashion centres in the world - Paris, Rome, London, New York. Leading world designers think up new fashions each year and show them at their fashion shows. The garment industry then chooses the dresses and suits that are suitable for mass production. British men, especially office workers, are dressed more formally at work than men here. A dark suit with a tie, a bowler hat, and an umbrella is the trademark of an English gentleman in the City of London. Theatre Our family can watch a lot of plays on TV but we say that a performance on a real stage is the best. My parents go to the theatre sometimes. They go to the Klicpera's Theatre. So, I will say you some facts about theatre. The people who go to the theatre to watch a play are the audience and they sit in the auditorium. The people they go to see are the actors performing on the stage. A woman who acts is an actresses. Most actors today have studied at dram school. Many people are regular Theatre-goers and look forward to the next performace. The play may be a tragedy, a serious play about great suffering, or a comedy, which is light and amussing. Shakespear's Hamlet is a tragedy an Midsummer Night's Dream is a comedy. Theatres in British and the U.S.A. Most of the professional theatres in London are in the West End, but the new building of the National Theatre is on the south bank of Thames, near two concert hals built since the war. There are three stages in the National Theatre. Opera and ballet are performed at the Royal Opera House in central London. The Royal Shakespeare Company plays in London and, from April 23rd, Shakespeare's birthday, till the end of the tourist season in October, in Stratford-upon-Avon, Shakespeare's birthplace. In the U.S.A. only large cities have professional theatres. But there are many theatre performances in the universities.

In New York most theatres are situated on Broadway. Unlike the theatres in this country, they only take actors and actresses for one play, which in then performed as long as people come to see it. Steet Entertainment Waht we like to do in Britain? Maybe we want to hear music ancient and modern, watch clowns and magicians, and perhaps see some nice paintings as well. You could go to a concert hall, a rock'n'roll club, the circus and an art gallery. We'd probably have a lot of fun and we'd definitely spend a lot of money. Why not just fo for a walk down a main steet instead? In a British city there is nearly always some kind of music in the steets. Some of it is awful - I once saw an old man, who knew aboy two notes but couldn't play either o f them properly, "plaing" a mouth-organ - but some of it is marvellous. I haveseen a twelve-man jazz band, a string quartet playing Mozart, and a group playing fifties' rock'n'roll, all in the street. The underground in London is another good place fo music. There are signs everywhere saying it is forbidden, but they don't seem to have much effect. But music is not the only art form you find in public places. Pavement artists produce pictures in chalk, either on the pavement itself or on big pieces of paper that they can use again, and in places like Covent Garden in London there are all sorts of free entertainments, for example clowns,jugglers, magicians, mime artists, dancers, and so on.
