The world of performance art usually hates both performance and art. But in this rare case, we get something that is actually both.

Usually, when I hear the term “performance art” the first image that springs to mind is a be-dreadlocked gentleman clogging up a busy downtown sidewalk, stapling one dollar bills to his solar plexus while screaming “Close Guantanamo!” And while this untrained eye may be missing the artistic merit of such a display, in the case of Japanese performance art troupe “Enra” it’s difficult to miss. Combining music, lighting effects and beautiful dance choreography in this piece entitled “Pleiades”, this incredibly talented troupe create a piece of performance art that doesn’t make me wish their father would yank their trust fund, which is a new feeling when watching the genre, so bravo if just for that.
