HOLA Member Bochinche

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

Teatro IATI is set to launch its third annual Performing Arts Marathon (PAM). A three-week, multicultural and multidisciplinary event, PAM is presenting over 150 artists and 14 national and international productions in dance, music and theater. Some of the productions are listed below. (HOLA members are listed in bold type.)

My Audition for Almodóvar. Written by Alberto Ferreras and Inma Heredia, directed by Ferreras, and choreographed by Carlos Fittante, the solo show (starring Heredia) brings you the chance of a lifetime for an actress on the verge of a nervous breakdown.

Inverosímil (Hard to Believe). Written by Ariel Dávila and directed by Gerardo Gudiño, this production mixes genres such as absurd comedy, cop story, telenovela soap opera and Greek tragedy and puts it in a film noir aesthetic. Starring Patricia Becker, Beatriz Córdoba, Ricardo Hinoa, Alfonso Rey and Marcelo Rodríguez.

La esposa y el maniquí (The Spouse and the Mannequin). Written by Paula Crequet and directed by Yolanny Rodríguez. This play asks, How far would you go to punish your cheating spouse? Starring Katherine Leyva Marichal, Alain Michel Martínez, Berenice Piazza and Héctor Palacios.

Decade of a Glance. Created, directed and choreographed by Joan Evans. An epic story of a few stories in the Dustbowl of the U.S., circa 1936, who are uprooted from their farmland by drought, dust storms and mortgage foreclosure.

Adela dice... (Adela Says...). Written by Claudio Marte and directed by Germán A. Baruffi. A play that deals with Adela and Ramón, a Dominican couple with more than 20 years in New York, who are torn between going back to their past and rejecting the best offer of their lives. Winner of IATI's 2009 Showcase of Abdón Villamizar Playwrights Lab and Directors Lab. Assistant directed by Tamara Turner. Starring Jeanette González, Mauricio Leyton, Carlos A.
