Buglisi Dance Theatre is proud to partner with Steps on Broadway, Dance/NYC, The September Concert, and all of our professional colleagues and friends from the NYC dance community on the fifth annual presentation of The Table of Silence Project 9/11 at Lincoln Center.
The Table of Silence Project 9/11 is a multi-cultural performance ritual for peace and healing, realized through a transcendent ceremony with 100+ dancers and musicians that carries out the vision of its choreographer, New Yorker for Dance Jacqulyn Buglisi and collaborator artist Rossella Vasta. Artistic Director Jacqulyn Buglisi invites all dance companies and dancers with professional experience to unite with her in performing this most powerful message of peace from the cultural capital of America to the world.
Since 2011, more than 600 dancers have participated in The Table of Silence, and over 30,000 people in 45 states and 82 countries have viewed this living memorial to peace via live stream. The “Table” is recognized by Proclamations from Governor Andrew Cuomo and Mayor Bill de Blasio; Consul General of Italy in New York, Natalia Quintavalle.
