See the sober, beautiful images from the 9/11 Table of Silence Project

More than 100 dancers perform in this ritual at Lincoln Center, using ecstatic movement to summon peace on the anniversary of 9/11

For the fifth year in a row—from 8:15am to 8:46am—Jacqulyn Buglisi's movement work the Table of Silence Project 9/11 animated the Josie Robertson Plaza at Lincoln Center, turning the space itself into a focus for the city as it commemorates 9/11. Buglisi created the work with the visual artist Rossella Vasta, whose Table of Silence installation inspired the project; the work’s dance incarnation conceives itself as a living mandala, a series of concentric circles that embody a kind of healing labyrinth. Here, you can see how the more than 100 performers—some smeared with ash like Butoh dancers—turned the plaza into a space for meditation and rapture rather than fear.
