Through a trio of intimate conversations, Splendid Devils gives voice to three real artists who, though pioneers in their respective fields, had all fallen into relative obscurity by the times of their deaths. Inspired by the lives and work of these women as they navigated the cultural landscape of the early 20th century, Poulos finds timely relevance in their struggles, questioning the attainability and sustainability of freedom from social convention and the price of seeking to live a life that defies expectation.

We're running around an art gallery in Queens experiencing this immersive new work that's one part séance, one part time travel. Thrilled to be directing this piece, and working with this wildly talented team of women. Hope to see you there!
Just a little something about what I'm looking forward to in the coming months...
