Entertaiment refers to the varying activities that engage and amuse people. It is a broad concept and can include anything from music to sports, movies to food. Many forms of entertainment have the capacity to cross over multiple media and demonstrate an almost unlimited potential for creative remix. The classic story of Scheherazade, for example, has been retold in the professional storytelling tradition; as an orchestral piece by composers Rimsky-Korsakov, Ravel and Szymanowski; as a film by director Pasolini; and even as an innovative video game.
