The Knitting Pilgrim – May 4

The Knitting Pilgrim 

featuring the Stitched Glass tapestries

Sat, May 4, 2019 @ 7pm: Click here for TICKETS

A one-man play and talkback about the real-life artistic and spiritual journey of Kirk Dunn, who took 15 years to knit a triptych of large tapestries, designed in the style of stained glass windows, exploring the commonalities and conflicts of the Abrahamic faiths. 

There is no other project like it in the world.

Kirk Dunn – Knitter, Performer, Co-Writer

 

Kirk is a knitter, actor, and writer. He is also a ‘PK’ – a preacher’s kid: the product of three generations of Presbyterian ministers. 

Stage credits include Billy Bishop Goes to War (Ergo Arts Theatre, Carousel); Merlin, The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (Abridged) (YPT); Dads! The Musical (Charlottetown, Stirling, Drayton); Romeo and Juliet (Ford Centre); More Munsch (The Grand); The War Show, A Flea in Her Ear, Don’t Dress for Dinner, and The Affections of May (Drayton). 

Kirk has been knitting since 1988. In 1998, he apprenticed with Kaffe Fassett in England. In 2003, Kirk received a Chalmers Fellowship for Stitched Glass, an installation that took 15 years to knit. With The Knitting Pilgrim, he is now exploring the intersectionality of writing, performing and knitting – his most exciting adventure yet. www.kirkdunn.com.

“Kirk’s work is unique, beautiful and meaningful.” 

– Stephen Kendall, The Ecumenical and Interfaith Relations    Committee, The Presbyterian Church in Canada

“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 designer

“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
