German techno institution Berghain have announced that they are too hold a one of nativity play in the Panorama Bar on Christmas Eve.
According to Tama Sumo, the play director and Berghain regular, the show will be unlike any nativity play ever seen before.
“We’re really excited about the play,” confirmed Sumo earlier. “It’s going to be a wonderful celebration of an alternative Christmas story, while still sticking to the roots of the more traditional nativity. All soundtracked by techno that will literally leave you brain damaged.”
“If people thought the Virgin Mary giving birth to our Lord and Saviour was miraculous, they’re really going to have their minds blown when they see Josef and Martin, our gay couple, giving birth to a set of Jesus quadruplets in our nativity,” explained Sumo. “And instead of giving birth in a stable in Bethlehem, they’ll be having the baby in a partially destroyed Palestinian hospital in the Gaza Strip.”
Berghain’s chief of security, and the world’s only man with facial tattoos to hold a steady job, Sven Marquardt also spoke to Wunderground.
“Naturally I’ll be playing the Innkeeper in this year’s nativity play,” confirmed the intimidating doorman. “I won’t be letting anyone in, I don’t care how heavily pregnant they are or how much room there is inside, nobody will be getting through my doors on the night of the play. It’s as simple as that.”
Other people set to appear in the play include, Jackmaster, Eats Everything, Skream and Seth Troxler, who will play the Jesus quadruplets, Sven Väth, Laurent Garnier and Dave Clarke as the wise men, Marcel Dettmann and Ben Klock as Josef and Martin and a very special guest appearance from David Guetta, who will play the donkey.
