Full Moon Jam 2023 Spring Bulletin
As the weather grows warmer, we are gearing up for another exciting season of jams across the city! Stay tuned for the full 2023 schedule!
Town Hall - May 7th
The Full Moon Jam will be hosting our annual Town Hall on Sunday, May 7th at 4:00 pm at a private outdoor venue in northeast Humboldt Park. If you'd like to attend, please RSVP by filling out this form. If you cannot attend, we will be recording the Town Hall to watch online. We will email out invitations and the location to everyone that signs up 2 days prior to the event.
We will discuss the history of the Jams, recap last year's season, and review our budget and programming goals for this year. We welcome community feedback and input from everyone as we plan our 2023 season and beyond. This is a great opportunity for anyone who wants to get more involved in the FMJ to share their ideas and get to know the organizers.
Welcome our new board members!
Robert Bershadsky aka Lion
Robert Bershadsky, aka Lion, has been going to the FMJ since 2015 as a spectator and 2021 as a performer. Years of acroyoga and partner acrobatics opened up his world to physical movement and creative exploration which brought him into the fire/flow community in 2019/2020. Since 2020, Lion has been performing professionally in many facets of his circus lifestyle. He hopes to expand the FMJ essence of community outreach and opportunities for those not in the community to empower themselves with classes in flow arts. He also is excited to bring his energy of playfulness to keep the joyful expanding nature of movement arts for years to come at the FMJ!
In the FMJ events of 2008, Enken found a hub of artist networking that led to their participation in building out artist collectives, trying circus arts like stilt-walking and aerial arts, and working on interactive art projects and experimental digital art. As the FMJ continues to thrive and grow, they seek to give back to the community that makes the event the beacon of summer fire performance in Chicago that it is. Meanwhile, they continue to explore movement art forms such as acroyoga and multiple fire props, and to be an enthusiast for flow artists of all types.
We are grateful for all of their generous contributions to the Full Moon Jam, and their dedication to community guidance. The Jams flourish thanks to the efforts of folks like Enken and Robert.
We hope to see you all at the Town Hall and look forward to announcing our season schedule soon!
