Roman Sikora: Das Prager Jesulein (The Infant Jesus of Prague) – Video of the staged reading from 8 December 2022, GalIery of the Czech Centre Berlin

Just before Christmas, we invited you to a special staged reading in the Tschechische Zentrum Berlin as part of Ein Stück: Tschechien, the Christmas Edition. In Prager Jesulein, Czech dramatist Roman Sikora satirises the Christmas story and relocates it to the Czech Republic in the present day. Joseph and Maria live in a Moravian village. First Joseph loses his job, then he and Maria also lose their apartment. Hoping for a better life, they go to Prague… A staged reading with plenty of Christmas songs that describe a very a different reality to the one in the play.
