Walking to Jerusalem – Blisters, Hope and other Facts on the Ground

Written and performed by JUSTIN BUTCHER

Video design - DAMIAN HALE

On the centenary of the Balfour Declaration, on the 50 th year of Israel’s military occupation of the Palestinian Territories and the 10 th year of the blockade of Gaza, more than 100 pilgrims set out to walk 3000 miles from London to Jerusalem – in penance, solidarity and hope, calling for equal rights for all in the Holy Land.

This is their story - based on walkers’ journals, and travellers’ tales, along Roman roads and refugee routes, past monasteries and mountain passes, desert wadis and Bedouin camps. Their experiences are brought to life in a playful and inventive blend of theatre and stand-up, combined with anevocative soundscape and video montage from live footage along the route.
