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. To see what other HOLA members are doing currently, click here.

Eric Robledo, shown at right, was featured in the DC Theatre Scene blog, where his participation in the GALA Hispanic Theatre production of Federico García Lorca's Yerma (Barren) was highlighted in Rosalind Lacy’s Top 12 shows of 2015, where it came in at number one. To read the blog, click here. The production, adapted by Fernando J. López and directed by José Luis Arellano García, also came up big at this year's Helen Hayes Awards, where it received nine nominations, including one for Outstanding Play. Robledo and the rest of the cast are nominated for Outstanding Ensemble in a Play. For more information, click here.

Carla Caraballo will be starring in two plays from the Afrikan Women's Repertory– How Much Do We Hate Each Other? Let Us Count The Dead and Women Gather.

Larissa Santiago, shown at right, will be starring in the film The Darkest Black (written and directed by Angelita Mendoza and Víctor Capiz and produced by VidiVici Films and Xizmo Media). She received the role after reading the casting notice through the e-mail announcements that HOLA sends to its members and self-submitting.

Vladimir Ríos, along with Lester Blum, was interviewed by Time Warner New York 1 News for the narrative photo series I Still Remember, for which Blum served as photographer and Ríos served as creative director and lead actor. 
An epic, compelling photographic narrative (and accompanying book of photos) which tells a powerful and moving story of the quest for love, destruction, and remembrance, it takes place in the gay culture of New York City in the 1980s and 1990s. I Still Remember commemorates those who have passed from HIV/AIDS-related causes and to help educate a younger generation about the early years of the disease. I Still Remember was just recently exhibited at Staten Island LGBT Community Center in the Tompkinsville section of Staten Island. To see the interview, click on the video below.
