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, performance or similarly artistic gigs and/or recognition in the media. The names of HOLA members and Friends of HOLA are listed below in boldface. To see what other HOLA members are doing currently, click here.

Marco Antonio Rodríguez's HOLA award-winning play La Luz de un cigarrillo continues to rack up more honors, as it went three for three as it won all three Soberano awards for which it had been nominated. It won Best Play, Best Actress (Aleja Johnson for her portrayal of Luz) and Best Director (Germana Quintana) from its production by Teatro Las Máscaras in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic. The distinguished Soberano Awards are awarded annually by the Asociación de Cronistas de Arte of the Dominican Republic in Santo Domingo. [Congratulations to Rodríguez, shown at right.].

Vanessa Verduga, shown at left, in character, and her webseries "Justice Woman" (in which she writes, produces, directs and stars as the titular character) was profiled in Subversify Magazine, which reviewed the webseries' second season. To read the article, click here.

Adriana Gaviria will be acting in a production of Tennessee Williams' The Glass Menagerie. Directed by Timothy Bond, the play will run at Syracuse Stage in Syracuse, New York. For more information, click here.

Laura Riveros, shown at left, will soon be seen in Donde hubo fuego. Based on the myth of Clytemnestra and a short story by Marguerite Yourcenar, it is adapted and directed by Ramiro Antonio Sandoval and produced by Tabula Rasa NYC Theater and Performance Lab. The dance-theater piece will feature live music and be presented in April as part of the Festival Alternativo de Teatro de Bogotá in Bogotá, Distrito Capital, Colombia.
