SUGIZO Composing Music for Theater Performance of “Kaikyo no Hikari”

SUGIZO is writing the music for another play, Kaikyou no Hikari. Based on Tsuji Hitonari’s Akutagawa prize-winning novel of the same name, it will star kabuki actor Shido Nakamura with comedian/actor Jin Katagiri. The play will be shown at the Yomiuri Otemachi Hall from April 11-29th.

A synopsis of the novel from J-Lit:

Kaikyo no hikari (Lights in the Channel), the novel which brought Tsuji into prominence, is set in Hakodate, a port city at the southern tip of Hokkaido. Two men are approaching their thirtieth birthdays, one of whom—the narrator—is a guard in the local penitentiary. At the prison one day, he encounters Hanai, an old classmate, who is beginning an eight-year-sentence for inflicting bodily harm. In grade school, Hanai had bullied the narrator terribly, and under curious circumstances, the pair now meet again after an interval of eighteen years. Married and a father, the narrator has spent his entire life in Hakodate overlooking the rough waters of the Tsugaru Strait, where his fisherman father lost his life. The narrator perceives Hanai’s presence as a threat, but Hanai ignores him, becomes a model inmate, and is let out early on good behavior. On the day of his release, however, he assaults the narrator, yelling “Who the hell do you think you are!” The description of the channel between Hakodate and Aomori, which swallows countless human lives yet goes on shining, leaves a haunting impression.
