HOLA Member Bochinche

Bochinche refers to "gossip." In this sense, we use it to mention HOLA members or Friends of HOLA who are getting acting, performance or similarly artistic gigs and/or recognition in the media. The names of HOLA members and Friends of HOLA are listed below in boldface.


Sonia Manzano, pictured at left, received a Pura Belpré Award for her debut novel The Revolution of Evelyn Serrano (Scholastic Press). Named after the first Latina librarian at the New York Public Library, the award, established in 1996, is presented annually to a Latino or Latina writer and illustrator whose work best portrays, affirms, and celebrates the Latino cultural experience in an outstanding work of literature for children and youth.

Susana Pérez will be starring in the short film Tiny Actions (written and directed by Lexie Grace), to be shot next month in New York City.

Omar Pérez is directing the play 28 Years Later (written by Uma Incrocci, Nicole Greevy and Erica Jensen). The play stars Jesús E. Martínez (see below), Rocío López, Kat Chua, Dustin Fontaine, Natasha Yannacañedo, Keith Johnston, Iris Taylor and Lina Sarrello and will be presented in January at Space on White, located in Manhattan's Tribeca neighborhood.


Jesús E. Martínez (see above) is acting in the workshop presentation of Neon Baby. Conceived and directed by Jorge B. Merced (and inspired by a book by Arnaldo Cruz-Malavé), it is written by Ricardo Pérez-González with original music by Desmar Guevara and choreography by Richard Rivera. The production stars Sean Carvajal, Anthony Cotto, Sol Crespo and Ashton Pina. The workshop will take place in February (with a world premiere to follow in May) at Pregones' eponymous theater in the Mott Haven section of the South Bronx. For more information, click here.
