March 10 – April 14 Springboard Workshop
The Borderline Proxy performs Doom Patrol (pilot issue): Leap in the Void–The Pencil Sketch Dummy
The Borderline Proxy has undertaken a very ambitious project for the Spring production workshop which was slated for a month-long period starting in mid-March. Doom Patrol is an exploration of performers, personal trauma, social media, parallel reality, private fantasy and alter egos. The concept is for a long-term project which will produce a series of numbered issues in the manner of a comic book (the title is drawn from a crucial comic book title that introduced the traumatic anti-hero into the genre of superhero adventures as well as the concept of personal quirks that bring both estrangement and empowerment). For the pilot issue the group has decided to consider their first performance as a Pencil Sketch Dummy: a rough esquisse for what they have in mind to develop in the years ahead. The Borderline Proxy includes Maria Mavridou, Stefania Petroula, Tashi Iwaoka, Thalia Laric, Manuela Lucia Tessi, Jonathan Nagel and Roman Zotter.

AudioVisualSpatial interdisciplinary performances in a 360 degree round immersive space live and online
The Warp presented its seasonal program of AudioVisualSpatial works in the Kunstkapel with Springboard. Springboard is defined as a beginning from which an enterprise is launched and this can remind us that The Warp perpetually begins again with every new assembly of projects while; suggesting not only the “jumping off point” of inspiration artists and performers are taking from the Kunstkapel location but also from the altered realities with which we live and the current Coronavirus restrictions. A series of programs combining several projects were presented live in the location and online following current requirements in the period from April 1 to April 25.
Springboard is divided into two sections:
April 1 to April 9: The Place In Itself: These are Springboard experiments with the Place: a series of projects originally initiated at the Kunstkapel previously are resuscitated to contemplate the space through a series of tests and experiments pointed toward future developments that include the recreation of the space as an augmented reality.
April 14-25: A Personal Place to Be: These are Springboard experiments with the Personal: commencing with the Final performance of the Springboard workshop of the Borderline Proxy, a series of projects are developed and presented that explore more personal creative relationships with the location with broader implications of creativity that continues beyond the breeding space. It is perhaps not even an irony that two of these projects are concentrated on actual pregnancy.
