Actor, writer and knitter Kirk Dunn will be presenting his multidisciplinary one-man show, The Knitting Pilgrim, featuring the Stitched Glass tapestries, at The Grace Arts Centre, Saturday, May 27, 2023 @ 7pm. 

The show, which theatre critic Lynn Slotkin called “a stunning piece of theatre… glorious and so moving,” combines personal storytelling, image projection and three huge knitted panels, designed in the style of stained-glass windows, that look at the commonalities and conflicts of the Abrahamic Faiths: Judaism, Christianity, and Islam. It recounts Kirk’s 15-year artistic and spiritual journey handknitting the ambitious project, and looks at why the faiths struggle to get along today, the meaning of art, the hell of grant-writing and the power of love to overcome major obstacles (and minor mishaps). 

The show premiered at the Aga Khan Museum in 2019, and has been performed over 55 times across Ontario to acclaim, with an upcoming tour in Austria and Germany in the summer of 2023. 

#BYOK (Bring Your Own Knitting) - knitting during the show in encouraged!

Hosted by the Grace Arts Centre, Sponsored by Sisterhood Fibres.
