A ROOM OF ONE'S OWN

A ROOM OF ONE'S OWN

“Ladies and gentlemen, it was the great British writer Virginia Woolf who argued that every woman had to have a room of her own in order to manifest her strengths. At the onset of the new millennium, American women finally have what they need to demonstrate their prowess. The War on Terror offers an unprecedented opportunity to the women of this great country.”
– from A Room of One’s Own

“It’s in the cracks, Ms. Fusco suggests, that the political truth is revealed.”
– Holland
Cotter, The New York Times

Coco Fusco presents an unflinching examination of the expanding role of American women in the war on terror. A seasoned interrogator briefs the audience on the rationales for using sexual innuendo as a tactic for extracting information, as well as the merits of a career in military intelligence for emancipated women seeking to follow in the footsteps of Condoleeza Rice and other powerful women in the military.

Coco Fusco has presented performances and videos in events world-wide, including
The Whitney Biennial, Sydney Biennale, The Shanghai Biennale, Transmediale, and The
London International Theatre Festival.
