Buglisi's Table of Silence returns to Lincoln Center on 9/11
Conceived by choreographer Jacqulyn Buglisi and visual artist Rossella Vasta
"The Table of Silence Project represents the common threads of humanity which unite all mankind into a single force with common goals and aspirations regardless of race, culture, or religion. Through this event, we wish to achieve the dual purpose of celebrating and honoring peace, through listening, a united moment of silence - a call for Peace in our world."
- Jacqulyn Buglisi
