Abstract

Globalization challenges the usefulness of different paradigms of socio-cultural evolution and opens the possibility for their hybridization. In this paper, two paradigms of evolution, the transformational (Spencerian) and the variational / selectionist (Darwinian), as discerned by Fracchia and Lewontin (1999), are examined along with their social theoretical counterparts. Most social theories of development are connected to different evolutionary paradigms in different historical contexts. The transformational paradigm prevailed until the end of the Cold War (e.g. theories of modernization), and the selectionist paradigm, in various theoretical forms, thereafter (e.g. Huntington, Eisenstadt). Most developmental policies today prefer the selectionist paradigm in terms of the neoliberal free market. The transformational paradigm in development policies was predominant in the era of the welfare state in the West, and its counterpart in the era of the statism of the East. Sustainable development in a socio-cultural sense is the youngest and the least consistent policy concept, and it is not founded on the evolution paradigms. The concept was launched by the UN as an attempt at mediating, mostly on the grounds of ecological alarms, between the free-market and statist policies. The author considers the hybridization of these two paradigms to be a proper conceptual foundation of sustainable development. On this premise, he expounds the concept of a culturally oriented sustainable development, arguing that hybrids of developmental policies are more suitable for a decent survival of most countries.

Abstract

Theatre, dancing and singing are arts born out of a common body that share the same idea and means of expression - the human body, these arts manifesting through the most important condition - the artist. The openings exhibited in the theatrical space, spiritless in some people, pragmatic in others, pass on the intimate message of dancing: substance, essence, density.

Abstract

The purpose of this study was twofold: 1) to discover the differences in degree of energy expenditure (EE) during Just Dance 2015 using Xbox 360 Kinect, Wii-U, PS3 Move, and Control YouTube video; and 2) to uncover whether or not exergaming could elicit moderate to vigorous levels of intensity (≥ 40% Heart Rate Reserve (HRR)) based on heart rate average (HRavg) measurements. Twenty-five healthy college-aged students participated in this study. Data collection was comprised of baseline testing, a 30 second familiarization period with each gaming console, and a gaming session. Participants danced to the song “Love Me Again” on a Just Dance 2015 program on Xbox 360 Kinect, Wii-U, PS3 Move, and a control YouTube. EE and HRR were calculated using FT4 Polar Heart Rate Monitor. One-way repeated measures ANOVA indicated no significant differences in energy expenditure across the consoles, F(2.74, 65.86)=0.65, p=.570. The paired samples t-test indicated the HRavg for the Xbox 360 Kinect (117±18 bpm) was significantly greater than the HRavg for the Control (112±16 bpm), t(24)=3.03, p=.006. About a third (28%-36%) of participants met moderate levels of intensity while exergaming. Dancing on all three major gaming consoles and YouTube video increase energy expenditures and can be used as an alternative form of exercise with the ability to achieve moderate levels of intensity.

Abstract

A performance is a common adventure, the result of the “confrontation” of several creators who meet, each of them bringing the perspective of their own domain, in order to decipher a play that is meant to be represented on stage. The musical satisfies the contemporary audience’s need for novelty and dynamism, as its main characteristic is the bringing together of arts: theatre – through acting, literature – through the libretto, music – through scores and vocal interpretation, dance, and painting – through scenography. The 13th edition of Gala Vedetelor – VedeTEatru, 2016, the Festival organized by George Ciprian Theatre in Buzău, had MUSIC as its main celebrity. The audiences could attend some of the best performances of dance theatre, concert-theatre, or musicals, such as: ArtOrchestra, directed by Horia Suru, Zic Zac, performed by its young creators Andrea Gavriliu and Ştefan Lupu, or West Side Story, created by the choreographer-director Răzvan Mazilu.
