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.

The IV Festival de Teatro Hispano del Comisionado is currently taking place throughout the month of March at the Comisionado Dominicano de Cultura in EEUU in Manhattan's Washington Heights neighborhood. As per Spaniard and Latin-American custom, the theater festival is dedicated each year to a living artist. This year, the festival is dedicated to actress Denia Brache (see below), shown at right.
