Les Productions des Pieds des Mains is a socially committed company that features well-known actors and dancers alongside atypically cast artists, with a view to provoking thought on artistic and social issues. Their shows have been presented many times, not just in Montreal (Espace Tangente, Théâtre La Chapelle, cultural centres), but at international festivals in Ontario, Belgium, France and Japan. The Globe and Mail rated Le Temps des Marguerites . . . à la folie ou pas du tout! the fourth best dance-theatre show in Canada in 2007. In 2010, the company won the Janine Sutto Award. In 2011, Pharmakon won a social commitment award and honourable mention for most remarkable production at the Gala des Cochons d’or, Quebec awards for emerging theatre. In 2012, founder Menka Nagrani received an award for her artistic achievements from the Conseil des arts et des lettres du Québec [Quebec arts and letters council].
