Dancers of Damelahamid is an indigenous dance company from the Northwest Coast of British Columbia. Their rich history of masked dance inspires a compelling performance, celebrating the diversity and time depth of the many beautiful Indigenous cultures across Canada. Through dramatic dance, captivating narrative, intricately carved masks, and elaborate regalia the Dancers of Damelahamid transform time and space, and bridge the ancient with a living tradition. For several decades, the Company has taken a present-day approach to traditional repertoire, developing contemporary choreography that honours its First Nations roots and preserves this sung and danced heritage for future generations.

Flicker (as in “woodpecker”) is a multimedia dance work by Margaret Grenier. A young man sets out on an inner journey. As the audience follows him over mountain and through forest, we encounter wandering souls, dancers, and mythical characters. The combination of design and choreography gives the stage a life-size feel. Flicker is a link between First Nations traditions and more current forms. An ancestral gift that resonates in our collective memory.
