More late afternoon in Jerusalem with Irish Modern Dance Theatre
connection in The Rocky Hotel, Ramallah, was a bit dodgy, so only a handful of the images I was trying to upload made it for the previous post. Now that I'm back in Dublin it's a bit easier - so here are the rest of the images I was trying to upload from that great afternoon in Jerusalem. We started at the Damascus Gate, and made our way down through the old city until we got caught up in the stations of the cross! Seriously! Anyway, here they are, and lots more coming anon...
In them we see IMDT choreographer John Scott, with his dancers the wonderful Joanna Banks, James Hosty (taking a pic), the amazing Immaculate and her daughter Patience (at Damascus Gate), Becky Reilly, tour manager Leo McKenna, and not to forget Winston Dynamite Brown. With a name like that, how could you ever forget him?
Also a few sharks, chicks, blingie dresses, a soldier or two, Holy Spots, like the one where Jesus allegedly rested his hand (guess which one that is), lots of fervent "in the zone" pilgrims (well, it is the Holy Land), and the interior of the church of the Holy Sepulchre. All that crazy faith!
Didn't get around to Dome of the Rock, or the Wailing Wall this time. Next time, next time.
