About Flicker

As the festival approaches its finale, the British Columbian Dancers of Damelahamid showcase a second night of ancient dances and songs that highlight the complexities of contemporary Indigenous identities. Just as light shimmers, Flicker represents the moments through which one can cross space and time, as the masked dancers’ journey in and out of the spirit world of their ancestors.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Flicker are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
