This morning, Jacqulyn Buglisi's Table of Silence Project returned to the Lincoln Center plaza for the third year. The public ritual for peace, performed in remembrance of 9/11, draws inspiration from Rossella Vasta's installation of 100 terracotta plates. It concluded at 8:46AM with a minute of silence, marking the moment of impact on the North Tower. In addition to members of Buglisi Dance Theatre, many of the 100-dancer cast are affiliated with the city's top schools and conservatories.
