International theatre artist Audrey Leclair (Montreal, Quebec) is visiting Davenport for the next three weeks to develop a comedic theatre production with Quad Cities native Daniel Rairdin-Hale (Davenport, IA).

They call themselves ‘Du Haut Duo’ (pronounced ‘duo duo’) and they are planning to travel their physical comedy show to Montreal, New York City, and other places around the world…but they are premiering here in the Quad Cities first.

Audrey Leclair recently finished an artistic residency in India and is also developing a show with Théâtre de la Tapisserie, a company she co-founded in Montreal, Quebec.

Daniel Rairdin-Hale teaches and directs theatre locally at St. Ambrose University and recently finished acting in a feature film produced by Fourth Wall Films entitled “Sons & Daughters of Thunder.”

Both of them received theatrical clown training at Dell’Arte International in California, where they met and worked with each other for the first time.

While here, they are also leading workshops in red-nose clown and slapstick through the Davenport Junior Theatre.

If you would like to see them perform, there are only four chances:

Sunday June 1, 2014 at the Davenport Junior Theatre at 1:00PM and 4:00PM

Friday June 6, 2014 at St. Ambrose University in Davenport, IA at 7:30PM

and Saturday June 7, 2014 at the Establishment Theatre in Rock Island, IL at 9:30PM
