This book is a comprehensive introduction to the analysis of fictional worlds in a set of 15 arts, including theatre, opera, figurative ballet, mime, audio drama, figurative drawing/painting, figurative sculpture, strip cartoon, animation, puppet theatre, still photography, photo-novel, silent movie, cinema, and television drama. Due to their extreme differences, the combination of different arts in the description of a single fictional world, and the translation from one medium to another, are considered problematic, yet, n contrast, this study explores their common grounds. Eli Rozik analyzes numerous fictional worlds in all these arts, produced during the last 2,500 years of artistic creativity, especially in theatre, art, and cinema. This inter-art journey from theatre theory to the arts is compelling reading for all those involved and engaged in artistic creativity.
