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.

Modesto Flako Jiménezshown at right, has been quite busy as of late. The award-winning actor-writer-director-producer is working on several projects. First up, he curated the Oye! Avant Garde Night festival for his production company Brooklyn Gypsies. The annual festival will feature several performers in September at Jack (located in the Clinton Hill area in Brooklyn).

A variety show with the centerpiece being an excerpt of the solo show The Last Hipster in Brooklyn (written and performed by Nick E. Finn and directed by Jiménez), it will take place on Saturday, September 27, 2016 at Lucky Jack's NYC (located in Manhattan's Loísaida neighborhood). For more information, click here. Jiménez will then act in The Wooster Group's production of Early Shaker SpiritualsDeveloped and produced by The Wooster Group, the piece is directed by Kate Valk, and will be presented in September and October as part of the Festival d'Automne à Paris at the Centre Pompidou located in the 4e arrondissement of Paris, France.
