Recent Advancements in Technology Have Made the Tv Screen so live that people don’t feel the need to go for any live performance (e.g. live shows or concerts). To what extent do you agree or disagree?
Sample Answer of Recent Advancements in Technology Have Made the Tv Screen
Although the live plays and musicals have magic and strange, elusive energy between Although live plays and musicals have magic and strange, elusive energy between the audience and the performers, I agree with the given statement that in the current age of live TV screening, there is little incentive to go out and see such events. Some arguments surround my opinion.
Body Paragraph 1
Undoubtedly, the experience of live performance builds community. There’s never going to be anything like sitting in a theatre with hundreds of people around you who value what you value. The appeal of live performance also provides the excitement of the actor-audience connection in real-time. These will keep the theatre from fading away completely no matter how much technology takes over our lives. However, today’s TV has eroded the influence of live events so much that the theatre and television have become competitors.
Body Paragraph 2
The main factors in favour of TV are the high cost and the limited accessibility of actual live shows. Even if more people wanted actually to go and watch live shows, the seating capacity is limited. On top of that, the tickets are very costly, especially if you want seats near the stage.
Body Paragraph 3
Another thing which goes in favour of TV is the lack of time in today’s fast-paced world. People also have to stand in queues and drive distances to watch these shows. One 2-3 hours live show actually takes away a whole day at times. Even though people want to experience live shows, such shows have become once or twice lifetime events and that too for those who have the time and money to do so.
Body Paragraph 4
Live television also has many other benefits. You don’t need to dress formally. It can be watched in the comfort of one sofa or bed while doing some other household chores. The focus of the cameras is also on the main characters, because of which you can, in fact, get a better view of the actual show.
To conclude, I reiterate my view by saying that while actually going and attending a concert or drama is in itself a unique experience, the live TV screen of today has the edge over it all because it has made arts accessible to all regardless of geographical, social or economic boundaries.
