The Knitting Pilgrim

 
 

"In the knitting world where grey and beige plain sweaters seem to rule, how extraordinary to find this energetic man knitting such detailed and intricate color. I applaud his moxie!” – Kaffe Fassett, Textile Artist

“The Knitting Pilgrim is astounding and the opportunity to engage with it and Kirk’s amazing story-telling talent is a much needed balm for our age, for any age.” – Peter Smith, Project & Creative Director, Canadian Centre for Rural Creativity

An international textile exhibition, one-hour theatrical play and talkback tour about knitting together the Abrahamic faiths. 

Kirk Dunn has been knitting Stitched Glass, his textile installation of 3 hand-knit tapestries, each 6 ft by 9 ft in size, exploring the commonalities and differences of the Abrahamic faiths, for 15 years. Starting in the Spring of 2019, Ergo Arts Theatre will tour the textile exhibition alongside a one-hour theatrical play called The Knitting Pilgrim, performed by Kirk, animating the exhibition. The evening of exhibition and play can also feature a panel discussion about the issues of interfaith understanding, compassion and empathy. 

The Knitting Pilgrim is a one-act interdisciplinary performance using theatre, image projection and the remarkable Stitched Glass tapestries. The play, performed by Kirk Dunn, recount his fifteen-year artistic and spiritual journey of hand-knitting the ambitious project, and his hope to contribute to the vital conversation about xenophobia, interfaith strife and fear of the other.
