This year's HOLAfestival was dedicated to the memory of Mauricio Leyton, an HOLA member and supporter who participated in the 2011 HOLAfestival.
HOLA would like to thank, first and foremost, Vivian Deangelo, Winston Estévez and Germán Baruffi of IATI Theater for their hospitality in hosting the festival. Secondly, HOLA would like to thank the playwrights, poets, directors and actors (Claudia Acosta, Almazán, Bill Blechingberg, J.W. Cortés, Patt Franklin, Golden, Michael Mullen, Jay Santiago, Sean C. Turner, Gloria Zelaya) for their participation. Finally, HOLA would like to thank Louis Perego Moreno and Travis Morales
for their assistance on the festival's closing night and all those who attended the readings.
