Summary
This video uses scenes from Terence's Phormio, juxtaposed with scenes from Molière's Scapin, to show Terence's influence on later playwrights and to show how each play reflects the society in which it was written. The use of authentic oversized masks demonstrates the exaggerated gestures and vocal techniques that were part of this ancient form of theater.
