New Yorker for Dance Jacqulyn Buglisi invites all dance companies and dancers with professional experience to unite with her in this transcendent message of compassion and peace, to touch the hearts of many from the cultural capital of America to the world.
Dance/NYC’s executive director Lane Harwell offers that the work has special meaning today: “Enduring annual tributes, from a Tribute in Light installation seen from all corners of the city to a site-specific performance Table of Silence 9/11 streamed to thousands online, pay homage to lives lost on September 11. They also serve as poetic calls for freedom and peace that gain new meaning with every passing terror attack across the globe and with every new audience they reach.”
