Spoken Word Artist angela kaRIOTis @ NYC's Inspired Word
Spoken Word Artist angela kaRIOTis @ Mike Geffner Presents The Inspired Word, Thursday, Oct. 28, 2010, One and One Bar/Restaurant, Manhattan, NYC.
A lithe and vital writer-performer, kaRIOTis possesses the raw energy to light up a small city. But it's her sly and engaging use of language that makes her work memorable in dynamic performances that are serious and seriously funny. Her first solo show, REMINISCENCE OF THE GHETTO & OTHER THINGS THAT RAIZED ME was described as "Inspiring, enlightening, funny, heart-breaking and boundry-breaking" by NYTheatre.com. Angela has brought her unique performance style across America to venues such as The University of California- Los Angeles (UCLA-Live), Contact Theater in Manchester, UK, Legion Arts in Iowa and the Hip Hop Theater Festival. Winning a National Performance Network Creation Fund Award, she created her newest solo show, STRETCH MARKS: remix a fetal heartbeat and bust an amniotic flow. STRETCH MARKS is playing in New York City in November 2010. For artist info and video visit http://www.angelakariotis.com/
