The Knitting Pilgrim
THE KNITTING PILGRIM is a play by Canadian fibre artist/actor/writer KIRK DUNN. The story takes the audience on an artistic and spiritual journey - one that explores the commonalities and conflicts of the Abrahamic faiths, through an ancient and contemporary lens. Kirk, a self-taught knitter who apprenticed with world-renowned artist Kaffe Fassett, spent 15 years knitting the tapestries.  

The journey is a story you'll want to experience - there is no other project like it in the world.

The work is called Stitched Glass, and is a triptych of large hand-knit tapestries, designed in the style of stained glass windows.

Kirk sought out Christian, Muslim and Jewish consultants to help him research the project and, more personally, to learn about the opinions and experiences of others. |"The hope behind The Knitting Pilgrim has always been to create conversation," says Dunn. |"A conversation between all people - believers and non-believers - who find themselves in conflict. How can we understand and empathize with each other? Everyone has a unique background, point of view, and experience, and at the same time, many experiences are universal. Focusing on what knits us together, not what pulls us apart, is a place to start."

The play is one hour long, followed by a 30 minute talk back session, where audience members can ask questions and discuss knitting, beliefs - and Kirk's experience with both.
