HOLA Member Bochinche

Bochinche refers to "gossip." In this sense, we use it to mention HOLA members who are getting acting gigs.

Ángel Gil Orrios was one of the recipients of the 2009 Mayor's Awards for Arts & Culture. The award was given to him by NYC mayor Michael Bloomberg for his work as producer of Thalía Spanish Theater in Sunnyside, Queens.

Frank Craven continues to do his award-winning public access television program, "What's Ailing/Healing America?" on Manhattan Neighborhood Network. In addition, two of his plays, Quatre Chats et Un Loup (4 Cats and 1 Wolf) and Right vs. Righteous in a multilingual version (the latter play being translated into Spanish and Russian) by BookSurge. Finally, he performed, singing and playing guitar at a celebration for the anniversary of the birth of John Lennon. The performance took place at famed Strawberry Fields in Manhattan's Central Park.

Jean-Marc Berne
continues working on several voiceovers-- most recently, of the canine kind. He played the role of a dog in a Spanish e-learning audiobook and narrated the voice of "Dog Boy" for a Halloween video game. He writes, "Did you know that even dogs bark in different languages? For example, ¡Guau! (in Spanish), Ouaf! (in French) and Woof (English)."

Fragal Communications Press presented four short plays at the IX Candilejas Festival: Los cuernos and Imposible (both by Agustín Cuzzani), Las confesiones de Lola (by Karina Blanco and Joanna Herrera) and Cuando den las tres (by Salvador Enríquez). Produced and directed by Franco Galecio, the plays featured, Galecio, Blanco, Herrera and Guiovan Bolaños in the cast and took place at The Poet's Den Theater in Manhattan's El Barrio neighborhood.
