100 Dancers to present THE TABLE OF SILENCE PROJECT, a public tribute to 9/11 and prayer for peace, conceived by choreographer Jacqulyn Buglisi and Italian artist Rosella Vasta. Sunday September 11, 8:20 AM, ending at 8:46 AM on the Josie Robertson Plaza at Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts.

Choreographer Jacqulyn Buglisi is creating a site-specific "Ceremonial Event" for 100 dancers, drawn from the New York City dance community, entitled "The Table of Silence Project," to commemorate the tenth anniversary of 9/11. Buglisi Dance Theatre is partnering on this project with Dance/NYC and The September Concert. Participants are dancers from Buglisi Dance Theatre, The Juilliard School, the Martha Graham Center of Contemporary Dance, The Ailey School, National Dance Institute, Ballet Hispanico, STEPS on Broadway, and Peridance Capezio Center.

This free public event will take place Sunday September 11th at Lincoln Center's Josie Robertson Plaza. 100 dancers will gather in silent procession, forming patterns of concentric circles to create a peace labyrinth while encircling the Revson Fountain as a symbol of eternity, compassion and continuity of the life cycle. At 8:46 AM, recalling the moment when American Airlines Flight 11 crashed into the North Tower, the dancers will turn their wrists with open palms and extend their arms to the sky for one minute, evoking the simple gesture of universal peace. The dancers invite all spectators to join them in this ritual.
