"In modern times the stage is larger and is the focus of attention, similar to later Roman theaters, but the stage of the Greek theater was less dominant. The depth of the stage was roughly 7 to 12 feet, hardly enough room for any actor to perform his part, so actors also used the chorus as a performance area. Single acts were generally performed by one actor who stood in the center of the orchestra, on the steps, or around the vicinity of the altar. Within the orchestra, actors and chorus members danced, walked, and acted out their parts, in the view of everyone in the amphitheater. Making the orchestra among the most dynamic spaces in the theater."
