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.

Éric-Dominique Pérez, shown at right, was highlighted in Remezcla for his self-penned solo show El Gringuito (directed by A.B. Lugo and assistant directed by Billy Martín Mejía). The show, which is scheduled for a March run at HERE Arts Center in Manhattan's SoHo neighborhood as part of the Downtown Urban Theater Festival (DUTF), was called "funny, honest and a show not to be missed!"

Caridad de la Luz (also known by her nom de poésie et de musique La Bruja and her Taíno name Kachianao) is scheduled to host the fifth annual Taíno Awards.  The ceremony is scheduled to take place on Saturday, April 20, 2013 at the Bronx Museum of the Arts in the Morrisania section of the Bronx and will feature performances by Divine RBG, Cynthia Paniagua, Intikana, Milteri Tucker and El Grito de Poetas.
