*Explore both of these theories by considering the 'binding scene' in the Eumenides:

i. What kinds of spatial and choreographic relationships between theatre, spectators, actors and chorus, could have been established in each case?*

ii.How might different spatial relationships have affected the meaning of the scene, or the characterisation and status of the characters and chorus?

In theatre the use of space is often used to reflect meaning, for example status, relationships between characters, plot etc. Therefore in this scene we would create distance between Klytemnestra and Orestes with the Furies inbetween to show their hatred. Similarly to show Apollos belief in Orestes we would have the characters quite close in proximity.
