Theater Gurten

We are returning with a GIANT THEATER!

«Da chönnt ja jede cho!»

The Gurten has hosted open-air theater every two years for 22 years. After Dällebach Kari, Einstein, Paradies, Abefahre and Flöört.ch, Bernese author and theater director Livia Anne Richard is bringing her sixth world premiere to Bern's local mountain next summer with the play "Da chönnt ja jede cho!". For the first time in the history of Theater Gurten, Richard is not acting as both author and director: together with Bernese actor Christoph Keller, she forms an artistic duo.
The title of the play "Da chönnt ja jede cho!" carries the theme within itself: when we Swiss say "da chönnt ja jede cho!", we mean the exact opposite. And so this real-life satire deals with a highly topical subject relating to Switzerland's dependency on foreign workers and the fact that we stand on the brakes when it comes to actually integrating these people here. How much a Wale Wüthrich (played by Theo Schmid) from Hinterschnösligen can imagine that he is Swiss without having done anything for it and what good his Swiss passport will do him if he has problems that cannot be solved with money: You can see all this in the play "Da chönnt ja jede cho!".

Theater menu

In keeping with the content of the theater, the menu is a migration through different countries. Immigrants also bring fantastic recipes and flavor combinations with them, a small part of which we depict in our theater menu. The menu is rounded off in typical Swiss style - according to the motto "arrived in Switzerland".


Eggplant and ajvar



Polenta, grilled vegetables and jus



Grilled vegetables




The theater menu can be booked directly with the ticket purchase or requested later in the comments when making a table reservation.
