The Table of Silence Project initially took place at Lincoln Center in New York on 9/11 as planned by New York choreographer Jacqulyn Buglisi and Italian artist Rosella Vasta:

“This free public event will take place Sunday September 11th at Lincoln Center’s Josie Robertson Plaza. 100 dancers will gather in silent procession, forming patterns of concentric circles to create a peace labyrinth while encircling the Revson Fountain as a symbol of eternity, compassion and continuity of the life cycle.”

“At 8:46 AM, recalling the moment when American Airlines Flight 11 crashed into the North Tower, the dancers will turn their wrists with open palms and extend their arms to the sky for one minute, evoking the simple gesture of universal peace. The dancers invite all spectators to join them in this ritual.”

The Table of Silence project will also take place:

“October 22 at Syracuse University/NY; October 26 in Assisi, Italy as part of a series of programs organized for a multi-religious conference to be attended by Pope Benedict; and in 2012, the Center of Leadership Studies of Cardinal Stritch University/Milwaukee, and in the Porziuncola Nuova/San Francisco.”
