Join us for a multidisciplinary theatrical experience, featuring storytelling, image projection, and Stitched Glass­ — a hand-knit textile installation that explores the commonalities within Christianity, Islam, and Judaism.


This one-man play traces artist Kirk Dunn’s spiritual journey over the fifteen years it took him to make Stitched Glass. Like the artwork, the play celebrates dialogue between faiths and aims to create conversations around what knits us together, instead of what pulls us apart.


Dunn is an actor, writer, and textile artist who began knitting in 1988. In 1998, he apprenticed at the Kaffe Fassett Studio in England, and in 2003, he was awarded a Chalmers Foundation Fellowship for Stitched Glass.
