HOLA Member Bochinche

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

Graciela Lecube e-mailed us to let us know that the short film Loose Change (directed by Phil Botti), in which she stars, is an official selection of the 2011 Tribeca Film Festival in New York. For more information, click here.

Around the Block/Al Doblar La Esquina is presenting Computing April, a series of workshops of short plays descibed as "new plays at the alley/silicone interface." The plays were written by Evelyn Foley, Bill Beasley, Carlos Jerome and Thomas Eddy Moran and directed by Laurence Holder, Camille Holder and Gloria Zelaya. Scheduled for an April run, the production stars Jeffrey Hernández, Bárbara G. Santiago and Samuel Muñiz and will take place at the New York Public Library Epiphany Branch in the Kips Bay area of Manhattan.

Luis Salgado is teaching several dance master classes this month at Madrid Dance Center in Madrid, Spain.

Jorge Luis Berríos and Jorge Álvarez are appearing in Vida de perro. Written and directed by Félix Otero, the play is scheduled for a May run at the Studio Theatre at Herbert H. Lehman College, City University of New York in the Bedford Park section of the Bronx.

Edouard DeSoto booked an on-camera Verizon commercial.

Éric-Dominique Pérez's self-penned solo show El Gringuito is performing at Teatro LATEA/Caicedo Productions' The ONE Festival for an April run. Directed by A.B. Lugo, the show has received publicity from Hora Hispana (a New York Daily News supplement), People en Español's website, and the blogs House of Dandridge, El Blog de Pablo and Siembra Hielo. The production is taking place at Teatro LATEA in Manhattan's Loísaida neighborhood.
