Quotes

"Beakerhead opens an artistic and engaging door onto the world of science and engineering. There are many good reasons to do this-it's educational, it inspires creativity, it brings people together to innovate and it celebrates a real strength in the makeup of our country. Perhaps the most compelling reason though is that it is enormously entertaining. As a result, it involves the whole community!"
"Being an actor you kind of get rid of your self and put someone else in your body for an hour or so but with writing it is your own whakaaro, it is your own ideas and there is a lot more of you in there. I'm a bit of a control freak in that I like to be present when I'm engaging with people so the thing about writing is someone else is doing that for you" she says
"I’m looking forward to meeting the Blackfoot Nation’s maunga and learning about myself as a writer. Both opportunities are a privilege" says Nancy
"I wrote it in a single afternoon and really loved the effect that it had," said Parry on Friday as Arcade Fire prepared to perform in Toronto. "I spent the next few years listening to that, over and over again and just loving it and thinking 'oh, I've got to get back to this, this idea feels like it has so much potential in it.'"
