With the advent of steamships and railways, the phenomenon of mobility, and especially the phenomenon of emigration, took on a new dimension in the nineteenth century. In Europe, intra-European migration and emigration overseas proceeded side by side: millions of Europeans left their homelands and moved to foreign countries and continents. Many people from the theatre business were involved in this process. Their emigration was usually difficult, involved deprivation and triggered xenophobia, but at the same time it increased the potential for creativity and led to major institutional and aesthetical transformations.
