The Gauntlet is an immersive, site specific choral and movement piece by composer Sxip Shirey and choreographer Coco Karol.
An intimate experience bathing audiences in waves of harmony, poetry, and gesture, as they are led through musical corridors of sonic architecture created by the human voice.
Each performance of The Gauntlet is unique, reflecting the site, community and performers it is created with. Through a series of workshops, Sxip Shirey and Coco Karol work with choirs and wider community members to develop gestures, and generate the text for The Gauntlet. Workshops include “movement interviews”, which are inquiries into each participant’s phenomenological experience of “home” and belonging, and can be tailored to wider social and curatorial themes.
The Gauntlet was performed at National Sawdust in FERUS Festival 2018 and has since been performed at Cleveland Art Museum and The Sydney Opera House’s Antidote Festival.
