9/11 Table of Silence Project | Livestream Performance
Every year, on September 11, Buglisi Dance Theatre presents The 9/11 Table of Silence Project, a movement for peace conceived and choreographed by Jacqulyn Buglisi. The piece offers audiences a chance to reflect and remember 9/11 with a special outdoor performance at Lincoln Center in New York City.
The performance is a free, public tribute and ritual for peace featuring 100+ dancers on September 11, 8:15-8:46 am EDT. A moving meditation, the Table of Silence Project offers peace in wake of tragedy. It is moving and beautiful and important.
It is a privilege to work with Buglisi Dance to capture this beautiful tribute on film and to share it with viewers all over the world. Since the inaugural tribute in 2011, the livestream has been viewed across all fifty states and in 102 countries.
This year, if you are unable to join us in person at Lincoln Center, I hope you’ll join us from work or from home. You can come back here and tune in below or visit the YouTube link directly.

Now, more than ever, it is imperative that we share this message of peace and healing – a shared, unified ritual for hope and rebirth around the world. A movement for peace.
To do this, Buglisi Dance Theatre needs your help! They are running a kickstarter campaign to cover the costs of our livestream feed – which allows viewers around the world to access high quality video of the Table of Silence in real time, for free.
Help us share this message.
Please join us in remembrance and reflection.
