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 and performance gigs. The names of HOLA members and Friends of HOLA are in boldface.

Teresa Yenque, shown at left, was highlighted in the Se Fija! online magazine. To read the article (in which HOLA also receives a mention), click here.

Gabriel Sloyer will be performing the lead role in the production of Silent Song. The Julián Pimiento play is part of Working Theater's series entitled Stories from the 99 Percent. Directed by Tamila Woodard, the production will premiere in June at the Dorothy Strelsin Theater in the Abingdon Theater complex located  in the theater district of midtown Manhattan.

Teatro LATEA is presenting three shows by talented Latino artists in June as part of LGBTQ Pride Month. They are Lailah Lancing's self-penned solo show WhaHaHappenWuz.... (directed by Basil Rojas), Jeannie Sol and Mónica Monroe's cabaret show, and José Roldán, Jr.'s self-penned solo show Father Forgive Me For I Have Sinned (directed by Dante Albertie). The shows will take place at Teatro LATEA's namesake theater in the Clemente Soto Vélez Cultural and Educational Center (home to HOLA). For more information, click here.

Directed by Gerburg Jahnke, it was produced by Ebertbad for a June run in the Schmidt Theatre in Hamburg, Germany. For more information, click here (note that the website is in German). In addition, he will act in Never Gone, a film with noted German actor Oliver Krietsch-Matzura (directed by Christoph Assauer) and in the television series "Time of the Heroes (ARD).

Caridad De La Luz (also known by her nom de poésie et de musique La Bruja) performed in the La Mezclatina production of Bx-Rated. A collaborative, multidisciplinary work, the show explored issues of first- and second-generation Latina identity in the tightrope between urban life and ancestry. The show took place in late May at the LaGuardia Performing Arts Center in the Long Island City neighborhood of Queens. For more information, click here.

Omar Pérez and Johary Ramos are appearing in El apagón. Based on the José Luis González short story "The Night We Became People Again," the Pregones Theater production is directed by Jorge B. Merced (with musical direction by Desmar Guevara) and was presented in May at the Taller Puertorriqueño in North Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
