The Buglisi Dance Theatre and Lincoln Center, in partnership with Dance NYC, will present Table of Silence Project 9/11 to honor the 20th year since the events of 9/11, and the current crises that face humanity today.
This livestremed performance is an annual free public performance ritual for peace conceived and choreographed in 2011 by Jacqulyn Buglisi, Artistic Director of Buglisi Dance Theatre. Artistic collaborators for this year’s reimagined program include Composer/Music Director Daniel Bernard Roumain, spoken-word poet Marc Bamuthi Joseph, Buglisi Dance Theatre Co-Founder/Principal Dancer Terese Capucilli, and videographer Nel Shelby.
The socially distanced performance will begin this year with an excerpt of Ms. Buglisi’s masterwork Requiem, created in 2001 as an immediate response to 9/11 and performed live at Lincoln Center this year. Premiering in the shadow of tragedy, Requiem became a vehicle for collective healing. For the 2021 Table of Silence Project 9/11, the original 10-foot-long silk costumes in vibrant reds, golds and greens will be transformed by costume designer Elena Comendador into tones of alchemic white and silver, to recall the ashes, purity and sacredness of the lost souls remembered on this anniversary.
