FEATURED 2018 GUEST ARTIST:
Jacqulyn Buglisi / Buglisi Dance Theater
In her four decade career as a choreographer, artistic director, dancer, and master teacher, Jacqulyn Buglisi has made an indelible impact on the field of dance. Using literature, poetry, and heroic archetypes, Buglisi crafts socially-relevant dances that reveal the visceral strengths, humor and exquisite vulnerabilities of the individual.
The award-winning Buglisi Dance Theatre is renowned for multi-disciplinary dances that promote awareness of social issues and embolden audiences to recognize within themselves their own humanity. Now celebrating its 25th anniversary, BDT was co-founded in 1993 by Artistic Director Jacqulyn Buglisi, Terese Capucilli, Christine Dakin and Donlin Foreman, who performed together as principal dancers of Martha Graham Dance Company. BDT is known to NYC audiences for its seasons at The Joyce Theater, New York Live Arts, Ailey Citigroup Theater; and public school residencies; on tour at the Kennedy Center, Jacob’s Pillow, Vail International Dance Festival and abroad at the Melbourne State Theater, Prague International Dance Festival, and the Rovereto Festival, Italy, among others. The company’s repertoire of over 100 original works is archived in the Jerome Robbins Dance Division of the New York Public Library for the Performing Arts, and is performed by such companies as the Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater and Richmond Ballet. Governor Cuomo and Mayor de Blasio awarded BDT Proclamations for uniting the community through the Table of Silence Project 9/11, an annual performance ritual for peace at Lincoln Center seen in 129 countries via livestream. buglisidance.org | tableofsilence.org
