Entertaiment is the act of entertaining or the state of being entertained. Entertainment can be found at any scale: from a one-on-one encounter with a film, music or video game to an entire banquet adapted for two; from a solo recital to performances intended for thousands. Some entertainments have a more serious purpose than others: they may be a form of ritual, celebration, religious festival or satire for example. The familiar forms of entertainment demonstrate a remarkable capacity for creative remix – for example Scheherazade, an ancient story from the Persian professional storytelling tradition, has inspired orchestral works by Rimsky-Korsakov and Ravel; a film directed by Pasolini; and many innovative video games.
