Post subject:  9/11 Table of Silence Project

The 9/11 Table of Silence Project, a movement for peace created and choreographed by Jacqulyn Buglisi, returns for the sixth annual performance at the Josie Robertson Plaza/Lincoln Center. Free to the public, the 9/11 tribute was inspired by Italian visual artist Rossella Vasta's sculptural installation of 100 ceramic plates that represent a banquet table uniting humanity. The Buglisi Dance Theatre will lead more than 100 dancers from leading dance companies and schools. The event begins at 8:15 AM and concludes at 8:46 AM, the moment that American Airlines Flight 11 crashed into the North Tower. Given the unrelenting and tragic acts of terror and violence that continue in the world, 9/11 Table of Silence remains as relevant and timely today as when it was first performed six years ago at Lincoln Center. The ceremony has been embraced around the world, inspiring numerous similar events, most recently the U of Ca/Santa Barbara, where the choreographer staged this prayer for peace and healing to honor the student victims of the Isla Vista attack two years ago. The event will once again by livestreamed to countries around the world. Sunday, September 11, 8:15 AM, at the Revson Fountain, Josie Robertson Plaza, Lincoln Center, Columbus & 64th Street, free to the public. For more information: 212.719.3301 or
