I found the word RIOT in my name!

Feb 7, 2007

“Angela Kariotis received a 2007 Fellowship from the New Jersey State Council on the Arts.”

To quote the poet Flowmentalz, “I am SO New Jersey.” I am proud to represent the complicated and diverse state which I call home. The play awarded is Say Logos/ Say Word. I am writing a partner version, Odyssey Trippin’ (exploring the other-side of my hyphenated self). I believe this title is more accessable and speaks to the aesthetic and content: A first generation American’s quest, inspired by Homer’s The Odyssey, desperately trying to leave home, written in rhyme. I look forward to living up to this opportunity and to creating excellence.
