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.

Rubén Roberto Gómez, shown at right, is acting opposite his perpetual co-star Lynne Alana Delaney in the feature film Gradation (written and directed by Mike Breyer, who also stars), which is currently in production. For more information, click here.

The William Caballero short film Víctor and Isolina is continuing its run on the film festival circuit. The animated film (which utilized 3D models of its stars) is produced by Elaine Del Valle and Louis Perego Moreno (Tío Louie) and will be presented at the IFC Center in New York, as part of its Short Attention Span Cinema program in an evening titled “Shorts from the Sundance Film Festival” (the short film is playing at the Sundance Film Festival in January 2017). The film will run in December and January at the theater, which is located in Manhattan's Greenwich Village. For more information, click here.

Raúl Rivera, shown at right, with Karen Espinal, in the photo at left, holding award, received a special award from Academia Karen Espinal in Paterson, New Jersey as a result of his work at the academy where he teaches theater. In addition, the award honored his over thirty-year career as an actor as well as the inauguration of his theater company, Coquí Theater.

Luis Salgado, shown at right, was featured in the Fundación Nacional para la Cultura Popular de Puerto Rico (PRPop) blog, where he was interviewed when he stopped by the organiztion and where he spoke his life and career as an actor-dancer-singer-director-producer-activist, as well as talking about his upcoming projects.
