On Monday, September 11 at 8:05 a.m., Buglisi Dance Theatre and Lincoln Center will present an in-person and live-streamed performance of the Table of Silence Project 9/11, an annual free public performance ritual and call to action for peace conceived and choreographed in 2011 by Jacqulyn Buglisi, Artistic Director of Buglisi Dance Theatre.

“The company will present the evolution of the original full-scale version of the work,” states a press release for this year’s event. “To the sound of the conch shell’s Call to Action for Peace, a multitude of more than 150 dancers ascend onto the Josie Robertson Plaza at Lincoln Center creating improvisational stories of grief and hope. Following a prologue on electric violin, the plaintive strains of the flute, heartbeat of bass drums, trumpet, bells, and the cries of a chorus, the dancers form patterns of three concentric circles around the iconic Revson Fountain to create an ancient Peace Labyrinth while repeating twelve symbolic ritualistic gestures.”
