HOLA Member Bochinche

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

Marco Antonio Rodríguez, shown at left, was inducted into Latino Leaders Magazine's list of "Dallas's 25 Top Young Latino Leaders of the Future."

Ayanery Reyes, shown below at right, e-mailed us to let us know that HOLA is still working for her even though she has recently moved to Los Angeles. She booked a role in the play Not One More Foot of Land after seeing the casting notice in the daily e-mail announcements HOLA sends out to its members. The play is written by Art Shulman and directed by Kristina Lloyd. It will have its world premiere for a February and March run at The Secret Rose Theatre in the NoHo Arts District of North Hollywood, California. For more information, click here.

In addition to his acting gigs (in the plays
The Stranger to Kindness at The Kraine Theater in Manhattan's East Village in February and March and All About Meat (The Garcías) at the Duo Multicultural Arts Center in Manhattan's East Village, respectively), Antonio Miniño will be directing Riti Sachdeva's Scene/Unseen as part of the Planet Connections Festival. This production will have a June run at the 45 Bleecker Theater in Manhattan's NoHo neighborhood. For more information, click here.

Ellie Diez and Carlos Alberto Valencia are among the actors in Downsizing: The Ten-Minute Play Project. With original works by José Casado, Patricia Janvier, Adrian Kelterborn, Jon Lonoff, Jason Lucere, Karen Odyniec, Rebecca J. Roe, Lally Ross and Marcin Stawarz, the short plays are directed by Marco Aiello, José Casado, Christine Cirker, Michael H. Johnson, Adrian Kelterborn, David Kester, Natashe Nussberg, Kim Spurlock, Marcin Stawarz and Yaara Sumeruk. The production, presented by Our Workshop East, will have a March run at The Barrow Group's Mainstage Theatre, located in the theater district of midtown Manhattan.

Lorraine Rodríguez will soon be seen acting in the ABC's hidden camera, ethical dilemma series "What Do You Do?" with host John Quiñones.

Caridad De La Luz (also known by her nom de poésie La Bruja) is the featured poet at the Nuyorican Poets' Café for Friday, February 10, 2012, where she is set to perform a set of her work at the famed spot, located in Manhattan's Loísaida neighborhood.
