Critically acclaimed contemporary dance company plastic orchid factory
presents the work of Dora-nominated Montréal artist, Jacques Poulin-Denis,
and his multi-disciplinary company, Grand Poney. The Value of Things (La
valeur des choses) is an evening of performance that blurs the lines between
dance, theatre and a live music show .

Voted Best Dance Show in 2014 by the Montréal Voir, The Value of Things is
an enquiry. It is a nebulous but familiar course that reveals the
contradictions of our beliefs and ambitions. The work questions the stable
growth rate of our comfortable daily routine, our longing for guaranteed
investment returns on the dividends of our personal relationships. It
misleads the spectator on a voyage through vacuity and spectacle, guiding us
on an existential reflection. Performing to live music by multi award-winning
musician/composer, Francis d’Octobre, four protagonists explore, through
visceral movement and thoughtful theatricality, what defines us, motivates us
and moves us as human beings. The Value of Things confronts the choices and
ethics that govern our lives, surrounded by millions of other lives.
