* Numbered + handmade in an edition of 200 copies only; 180gr vinyl in custom-made outer (sealed), containing extensive booklet with images from performance + installation + newly commissioned essay by Akihito Yasumi (Japanese original + English translation); no digital * Takashi Inagaki’s original soundtrack score for filmmaker Takashi Ito’s Japanese-language stage adaptation of Jean Genet’s Prisoner of Love, and its parallel video installation, The Dead Dance. Genet’s final literary work recounts the two years he spent in Palestinian refugee camps in Jordan. Prisoner of Love, ‘written some ten years later, when many of the men Genet had known had been killed, and he himself was dying, is a beautifully observed description of that time and those men as well as a reaffirmation of the author's commitment not only to the Palestinian revolution but to rebellion itself.
