“Our team was trying to think of unique ideas for Escape Rooms that we hadn’t seen before—(and) we thought escaping from detention was a creative concept that fit perfectly with our location at the University of Ottawa.”—Kaitlyn Rourke, one of the event’s organizers and a fourth-year biomedical science student.

“Even in the context to which there might be some indication of (creepiness to the stalker’s actions), it’s never really pushed to the degree which we actually see how terrifying it really is.”—Julie Lalonde, women’s rights activist, and survivor of stalking.

“The festival really started with a single goal: let’s celebrate womxn artists. As a group of local artists, this is something we’d all felt for a few years—that desire to celebrate and connect with other female (and) genderqueer artists.”—Monica Bradford-Lea.

“(‘The Old Maid and the Thief’) is about small town gossip and scandal. It’s quite funny, and the music is very accessible even though it’s contemporary.”—Artistic director of the two operas, Sandra Graham.
