The Poor Rich
by Gemma Soldati
Saturday, February 17, 2024 at 7:00PM

The Wilbury Theatre Group
475 Valley Street
Providence, RI 02908


Everything you make, she takes. Mother Greed comes in many forms, but in The Poor Rich she’s at her most unadulterated. Behold the mischief that runs our world in this hour-long examination of power, absurdly invented with the spirit of pure imagination from award winning clown, Gemma Soldati. Prepare to be seduced, betrayed, and most of all—delighted.

An interactive romp that will check everyone's credit. 18+

She has taught in Los Angeles, New England, Chicago, and Toronto for both adults and children. She is currently a resident at Ars Nova’s Makers Lab in NYC. She also won Artist of the Year 2023 from Stay Work Play.

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, Money, Power and beyond. Her current touring shows are The Poor Rich, an interactive 18+ clown show about the absurdity of money and The Adventures of Sleepyhead, a family show about the loss of one’s dreams.
