Gemma Soldati

Gemma Soldati is an American performing artist and a teacher for Cirque Du Soleil's John Gilkey's The Idiot Workshop. Her most recent touring show was the Award Winning The Living Room--a devised clown show with Amrita Dhaliwal.

Gemma’s focus is clown inspired work developed in front of live audiences. Her projects playfully dive deep into the heart of vital themes probing audiences with questions and meaning making - Grief, Ritual, Sleep, Dreams, and beyond. Her next project, The Adventures of Sleepyhead, a family show about the loss of one’s dreams, will be heading to the Edinburgh Festival Fringe at Assembly in 2021.

Gemma was an ensemble member of The Murge, which LA Weekly described as, "Spontaneous Theater of the absurd...Lascivious, blasphemous and potentially dangerous." Additionally, she was ensemble and co-deviser in The Invention of Language and The Simple Simples —featured in The Neo-Futurists Kitchen Festival in 2016.

She has devised and produced shows in Los Angeles: The Cobbler, The Sleepover Show, The Living Room and Amateur Burlesque—featured in Comedy Bureau’s 2018 “100 Best Things in Comedy"

Gemma has studied with Betty Grumble, Paola Coletto, Deanna Fleysher, John Gilkey, Philippe Gaulier, Aitor Basauri, and Mick Barnfather.

"Has me thinking of Lucille Ball and Jerry Lewis." Stage Whispers (AU)

"Leave it to Gemma bring a fresh, bizarre, surprising, and hysterical take on taking your clothes off comedically." The Comedy Bureau (US)

“Arrestingly unpredictable and entirely sure of itself” Theatre Bubble (UK)
