Video: The Seven Sisters – Pleiades Dance and LCWR’s New Leadership


Japanese dance troupe Enra combines light, music, and technology in this 4-minute performance art video entitled “Pleiades.”

The dancers are Saya Watatani and Maki Yokoyama. It was directed by Japanese artist Nobuyuki Hanabusa, who also provided the music. This video is the newest in a series that uses the same visual technique.

Now, here’s the important question:

1. Why did the Leadership Conference of Women Religious show this video at their national gathering last week?

2.How does this performance invite us to be followers of Jesus and “children of the light” (John 12:36) today, especially those of us who live in the American Empire?

3. What does this video teach us about the dynamics of leadership and how energy moves to transform?

Send me your responses. See here for more about leadership practices in LCWR communities.
