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.

Mildred Ruiz-Sapp, shown at right, was featured in an article in The New York Times, where she was interviewed regarding art and its role in activism. She can currently be seen with her husband Steven Sapp and her brother William "Ninja" Ruiz (collectively they are known as Universes) in the play Party People. Written by Universes, the production is directed by Liesl Tommy and is currently running at The Public Theater in Manhattan's NoHo neighborhood. To read the article, click here.
