The stories we tell ourselves and each other about ourselves, each other, and the world around us shape our identity. Entertaiment is an ongoing exploration of these themes and their effect on our lives.
Merriam-Webster Dictionary definitions
Something affording pleasure, diversion, or amusement: solving the crossword is an entertainment for many people; a performance of some kind: the ball was an elaborate entertainment.
The word entertain derives from the Latin intertenere, with the prefix inter meaning “inside” and the suffix tenere indicating holding inside. It’s appropriate, since the entertainment we enjoy has an inner life of its own — stories like Scheherazade, for example, have been retold in many different media, including music by composers such as Rimsky-Korsakov and Ravel, film by Pasolini, and innovative video games.
