Time Out says

Choreographer Jacqulyn Buglisi returns to Lincoln Center with a reimagined version of this annual production, which serves as a tribute to 9/11 and a prayer for peace. The ritualistic half-hour performance features 32 dancers circling the Revson Fountain instead of the usual 150. Buglisi's collaborators this year include composer Daniel Bernard Roumain, spoken-word artist Marc Bamuthi Joseph, Buglisi Dance Theatre principal dancer Terese Capucilli and designer Elena Comendador (who is making a dramatic change to the piece's original costumes to honor the 20th anniversary). The event will be livestreamed for viewers at home as part of a digital program that also includes full footage of the 2019 performance of the Table of Silence Project and the world premiere of videographer Nel Shelby's Études II, in which dancers around the world perform movement stories inspired by the project.
