Table of Silence Project, 9/11/2011

Here are some photos I took of the Table of Silence Project, performed on Lincoln Center Plaza this morning at 8:20 in commemoration of the tenth anniversary of the 9/11/01 attacks. It was about half an hour long, was choreographed by Jacqulyn Buglisi in collaboration with Italian artist Rossella Vassa, and used 100 dancers, some from her dance company, Buglisi Dance Theater, and some from other companies and from Juilliard. The dancers were accompanied by a small band, consisting of a drummer, a flutist, a small choir, and a woman with a wind instrument that looked like a handmade blowhorn. I thought it was really beautiful.

Go here to read about the project’s conceptualization. It’s to be performed in other cities as well throughout October.
