Junko Emoto’s new work concerns revolution produced by the act of confession.
We are killing each other’s human spirits on the battlefield of our lives, with abnormal family units, twisted human relations, and ugly emotions such as egoism and jealousy as weapons. Surely confession is exactly the courageous act needed to bring revolution to this battlefield?
The characters make confessions: emotional secrets, secret activities, secrets about sexuality. Confession for the sake of revolution is sure to carry with it some risk. Confessions made in order to protect one’s own life sometimes destroy other people’s hearts and lives. Even so, we confess in order to survive. Can confession really bring about revolution?
