★★★★ “They address the big feels with a touch that’s deft and gentle, even when it’s delivered with exaggerated physical comedy, Punjabi nursery rhymes and vodka.” Time Out Melbourne (AU)

★★★★ “Hilarity and poignancy merge” The List (UK)

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

★★★★ “I’m not sure anything can prepare you for the full-on attack that is American double act Amrita Dhaliwal and Gemma Soldati” Everything Theatre (UK)


The Neo-Futurists are proud to welcome DhaliDati in their Chicago debut! This partnership originally sprung from Gemma Soldati’s involvement with the touring production of Wet the Hippo’s Simple Simples, when the group participated in The Neo-Futurist Kitchen Festival in 2016. The Neos are pumped to host this new work from the collaborative efforts of Soldati and Amrita Dhaliwal.



Confined to The Living Room, these two Accountants of Death work tirelessly to record the death toll. The occupational hazards wear on the clowns as they learn the meaning of life and death. What ensues is an absurd and physical jaunt brimming with audience interaction, existential phone calls, impaired dancing and the love of a goldfish.


Developed at The Lyric Hyperion Theatre in Los Angeles, this show rides the fine line between comedy and tragedy. Employing physical comedy and absurdist theatre techniques, this show leaves the audience laughing and crying and thrust out into the night to ponder it all. Amrita Dhaliwal and Gemma Soldati are students of Cirque du Soleil’s John Gilkey, Spymonkey’s Aitor Basauri, The School for Theatre Creators with Paola Coletto, Upright Citizens Brigade, The Groundlings and both teach for The Idiot Workshop in Los Angeles. Together they devised a clown show inspired by their loss of loved ones.
