God’s Dice is a “sculpture play” presented by Geoffrey Farmer in association with Theatre of Erosion or I Hate Work That Is Not A Play, a four-week thematic residency that he is leading at The Banff Centre. Continuing his interest in time and place, and in art that makes process visible, Farmer will create a new work with participants in residence. Incorporating props from the Theatre Department, such as mirrors, musical instruments, sculptures, texts and costumes, this conceptual work makes use of chance operations, improvisational methods, and choreographed actions. It is the sum of all these parts that creates a singular narrative, a final story that can only be fully realized at the moment the end is announced.

Opening Reception: Friday, November 12, 7:30 p.m.

Closing Reception: Friday, December 10, 7 p.m.
