NEW YORK (AP) - More than 100 New York City dancers paid tribute to the events of Sept. 11 with a moving outdoor performance evoking the cycle of life.

“The Table of Silence Project” began at 8:15 a.m. Thursday at the Lincoln Center for Performing Arts.

The performers from different dance companies wore flowing white tunics. They encircled the plaza’s fountain in a solemn synchronized piece.

They walked out in single file to the incessant beat of a drum. They formed patterns of concentric circles to create a peace labyrinth.

At 8:46 a.m., when the plane hit the trade center’s north tower, the dancers raised their arms skyward for one minute. It was a gesture of universal peace.

The performance was choreographed by Jacqulyn Buglisi (buh-GLEE’-see) of the Buglisi Dance Theater.
