Is there an Echo in here?

It’s no secret that all found-footage genre movies are the same. Grab a couple of characters, give one of them a camera, and expose them to something supernatural that’s content to lurk just off-screen until the last five minutes. Everything else will just fall into place.

But that formula isn’t particularly family friendly, if only because that thing waiting a few feet to the left of the cast is usually plotting their violent doom.

That’s what sets Earth to Echo apart from the pack. It, too, follows a group of characters armed with a camera and a tendency to encounter unknown life forms. But all those familiar parts have been rearranged just enough to make it suitable for a much younger audience.

‘Bee’ takes flight in Latin Ballet show

Celebrating the beauty of the planet and reminding attendees of the importance of creatures such as bees was the message of the colorful and intense ballet production “The Kiss of the Bee” that the Henrico-based Latin Ballet of Virginia presented at The Cultural Arts Center at Glen Allen April 3-6.

Albert Einstein’s warning of “No more bees, no more pollination, no more plants, no more animals, no more man,” was presented by the ensemble using dance and music as universal and cross-cultural languages.

“The Kiss of the Bee is a purely educational dance production and a continuation of the ballet’s environmental theme “Verde” that points to the importance of energy and resource conservation as well as the protection of animal and plant species,” said Ana Ines King, the artistic director of the Latin Ballet.}
