A ROOM OF ONE’S OWN is Fusco’s performance monologue about the expanding role of American women in the War on Terror. She speaks as a female graduate of interrogator training school. Using power-point and simulated live feed video from actual interrogations, Fusco gives a briefing about how a career in military intelligence offers great opportunities to emancipated women of the 21st century. Her performance explores how the current administration’s rationalizations of detention and prisoner abuse have led to a reconsideration of the possible legitimacy of torture. Fusco also raises questions about feminism in the 21st century and the ways that political conservatives have appropriated the language of women’s liberation.
