|Most often the events at the arena celebrate the dynamics of the human body in motion. These events engage the forces of the body in a highly contrived forum in order to bring about the highest expression of physical being, whose only consequence is that of competition. The arena frames the event, enabling the event's elevation to a status of cultural icon. It does this through its operation as a place for people to gather and experience the dynamic of the crowd and through its mediation of such events, enlarging its own forum. This mediation brings its own set of dynamics to the event with the cinematic rhythms of cuts, pans and wipes, further accelerating the events taking place within.
