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 5 ft by 8 ft in size, exploring the commonalities and differences of the Abrahamic faiths, for 15 years. Starting in May 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 which explore the commonalities and conflicts of Judaism, Christianity, and Islam. The play, performed by Kirk Dunn, recounts 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.
