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.

Éric-Dominique Pérez, shown at right, was featured in the Yahoo! Vida y Estilo blog on account of his starring role in the short film Crusade in Wonderland: Rise of the Drumpf (directed by Alejandro Marín). To read the blog, which is in Spanish, and to see the timely satire's trailer, click here.

Judy Torres, shown at left, will be singing her freestyle dance music hits at an event on Saturday afternoon, September 10, 2016, for Hispanic Heritage Month at Empire State Plaza in Albany, New York. For more information about the event, click here.
José Roldán, Jr., shown at right, performed his self-penned, award-winning solo show Forgive Me Father For I Have Sinned (co-directed by Dante Albertie and Rosie Berrido) in August on a cruise line as part of Atlantis Events. Also performing on the cruise (which traveled such European locales as Barcelona, Monte Carlo, Florence, Pisa, Rome, Sicily, Naples, Santorini, Bodrum, Mykonos and Athens) was Tony and Grammy Award winner Billy Porter. In addition, Roldán was interviewed for an article in The Advocate magazine which spoke about intersectionality as it relates to the LGBTQ community. To read the article, click here.

The production by Teatro Vista (of which Rivera-Vega is an Ensemble Member) is directed by Teatro Vista Executive and Artistic Director Ricardo Gutiérrez and will be presented in September and October at the Richard Christiansen Theatre at the Victory Gardens' Biograph Theater in Chicago, Illinois. The play also stars J. Salomé Martínez, Eddie Martínez, Maggie Scrantom, Adam Bitterman, Elisabeth Del Toro; Raphael Díaz, Felipe Jorge, Tracey Green, and Hillary Jiménez.
