BUGLiSi Dance theatre 25th anniversary season


Caravaggio Meets Hopper

Caravaggio Meets Hopper juxtaposes Italian painter Caravaggio and American Edward Hopper, and is set to a musical soundscape.  As always, Jacqulyn Buglisi and the company “explore human relationships that reveal the bold visceral strength, humor and exquisite vulnerabilities of the individual. This physical voice speaks of human greatness and possesses the potential to bring all cultures together, addressing current issues that face humanity  today by illuminating the global crisis in the environment, war, peace and the growing concern for the innocent.”


the table of silence project, 9/11

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

"The Table of Silence Project 9/11 is a multi-cultural prayer for peace, realized through a transcendent ceremony for 100 dancers swathed in white, that carries out the vision of choreographer Jacqulyn Buglisi and artist Rossella Vasta. The site-specific work is titled after Vasta’s installation of 100 terracotta plates arranged around a symbolic banquet table uniting humanity. Buglisi transforms the concept into a moving meditation, a poetic call for tolerance and peace in our world."
