In this article the author explores the interface of theatre, society and mediation in contexts of migration. By referring to two examples of her on-going PhD-research, the rehearsals of Born to be Swiss and the performance of “Grinch – the Panto. Who stole Christmas?” by the Basel English Panto Group, she explores the concept of “migrant theatre” and its position in Swiss society. Drawing on the many differences of the two projects she argues that “migrant theatre” can’t be understood as a coherent category: Both theatre projects mediate different aspects of migration for participants and spectators. Also, they are both firmly part of a Swiss theatre landscape. Thus, the projects simultaneously refer to both Swiss and non-Swiss issues. The article concludes that the mediating quality of the projects lies in these dual references.
