Dancers of Damelahamid



Fri. Jan. 19 • 730pm

Shortly after the potlatch ban was lifted in 1951, Ken and Margaret Harris founded Dancers of Damelahamid to preserve the Gitxsan peoples’ traditional songs and dances. Now, five decades later, the company is under the artistic direction of their daughter, Margret Grenier, whose works redefine and characterize traditional practices to be accessible for new generations. Flicker incorporates multi-media technology in a story about a young man who discovers his potential. An innovative multi-media dance piece that combines graphic design with vividly rich imagery that represents the mystical realm portrayed through coastal masked dance.
