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 listed below in boldface.

Nanda Abella, shown at left, booked the role of a coyote (a person who helps people cross the Mexican border into the United States illegally) in Color TVs in Tijuana. The show, written by Casey Wimpee and directed by Cole Wimpee, is a performance piece using seven performers, seven TVs and seven scenes to explore Christ's seven stations of the cross in the context of modern-day Tijuana, Baja California Norte, Mexico. It will have a June run at Brooklyn Fire Proof in the Bushwick neighborhood of Brooklyn. Abella was asked to audition after the director saw her headshot in the HOLA online directory of talent. The part was originally written for a man, but changed based on the strength of her audition. For more information about the show, click here.

Roger Ortega is acting in the play Areas of Heavy Traffic. Written and directed by Eugenia Macer-Story, the production is having a May and June run at the Cabaret Theater in the Theater for the New City, located in Manhattan's East Village. For more information, click here.

Ellie Diez booked a Spanish-language voiceover for Samsung.

José Roldán, Jr. booked a Swedish commercial for the product Gainomax.

Alejandro Fumero Gil can be seen in the Russian Arts Theater and Studio (RATS Company) production of The House of Curiosities. Written by Fred Pezzulli and Di Zhu, it is directed by Aleksey Burago and will be presented in June and July at the Connelly Theater in Manhattan's Loísaida neighborhood.

Ramón Hierro appeared in an episode of "Mortales" (Telemicro).
