《憂國》

Yukoku

〈憂國〉描寫的性愛與死亡光景,情色與大義的完全融合與相乘作用, 堪稱我對這人生抱以期待的唯一至福。 

---三島由紀夫
 

“Yukoku”, the theater play, was adapted from the novel story of the same name written by one of the most important Japanese literature writers, Mishima Yukio.As Reiko and Takeyama enjoy their time after their recent wedding, a mutiny forces Takeyama to rush out in the snowing morning, with Reiko cleaning the house under the consciousness to follow her husband into the afterlife. She waits three days, and as Takeyama finally returns, she takes care of him, sex with him, watches him commits seppuku, and finally, goes on her own journey toward final completion.

武山中尉與麗子享受著新婚的快樂,一場叛變讓武山在飄雪的清晨飛奔而出,而麗子懷抱著追隨丈夫於地下的覺悟整理隨身物品;她等待三天,當中尉回來後,她張羅丈夫日常、與之交歡,看著他切腹自盡;而後麗子莊嚴平靜的一人走上成就之道。 
曉劇場以女性視角切入日本文學大家三島由紀夫經典作品,透過麗子的眼睛回顧兩人共同赴死前的醒悟;看見三島由紀夫對於情欲與死亡的終極書寫,剖析其筆下狂、美、一瞬的執著精神,以及藉麗子從容赴死的姿態,展現對於個人精神信仰的極致美學。
