New Troupe/Old Troupe: Just Friends/Manick

New Troupe/Old Troupe: Just Friends/Manick

Duos. They aren’t just the best sorts of Cheez-Its (sharp cheddar AND parmesan? I’m so grateful to be alive right now!) but they are an increasingly common troupe permutation. And why not? Few practice logistics to handle, and when you have good chemistry with one troupemate, you have good chemistry with them all.

 So is the case with Just Friends, a duo consisting of Paco Giurfa Ley and Kelsey Clay, whose surnames wonderfully rhyme. Paco describes their troupe as “"without a set premise or defined format. Sometimes it's a monoscene, most of the times character pops and scene jumps happen." 

Paco specifically asked if they could get their questions answered by one of the duos they draw inspiration from:  Amanda Austin and Nick Scott’s Manick. Manick is DCH’s longest-running troupe and has done scads of festivals, a real tag team par excellence.
