Terri Gold Photographs 25th Anniversary Season of the Buglisi Dance Theatre

The Table Of Silence Project 9/11

The Table Of Silence Project 9/11 returned  for a third year to Lincoln Center today. Conceived by choreographer Jaculyn Buglisi and visual artist Rossella Vasta with flautist Andrea Ceccomori and over 100 dancers, including the Buglisi Dance Theatre. The performance started at 8:15 and concluded at precisely 8:46,  the moment American Airlines flight 11 crashed into the north tower.

“The Table of Silence Project represents the common threads of humanity which unite all mankind into a single force with common goals and aspirations regardless of race, culture, or religion. Through this event, we wish to achieve the dual purpose of celebrating and honoring peace, through listening, a united moment of silence – a call for Peace in our world.” – Jacqulyn Buglisi

“There comes a moment, through repetition–like the beating of the hands, the pounding of the fist against the heart–that compels you to create a rhythmic tone that expresses perhaps some great hymn, some offering or worship that allows people to be unified in unexplained compassion.  They do not need words in this ritual.”

In partnership with Dance/NYC and September Concert, Buglisi Dance Theatre brings together the dancers to 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, the dancers turned their wrists with open palms  and extended their arms to the sky for one minute, evoking the simple gesture of universal peace.

The more I look at the dancers and the dance

the emotions and grace evoked – the stories told

I see more each time

the sinuous connections

existing in the liminal space

where the dancers are momentarily suspended in the space between two worlds…

     I was thrilled to photograph the 20th anniversary season of The Buglisi Dance Theatre last week. The 2 programs included four premieres: This Is Forever, Snow Falling on Water, Butterflies and Demons, and Zjawa (by Katarzyna Skarpetwoska, who was a student of Buglisi’s at Juilliard). Guest artists are Martine van Hamel and Charles Askegard.

 
I have been photographing the company for years – so celebrating and making images from  this wonderful anniversary season, the culmination of so much work by the whole company  was pure joy.
