Creating artistic work out of primal human behavior.
“I love the stripped-to-the-bone jazz-rhythm-driven, blues-rhythm-driven, and funk-rhythm-driven music and movement because it’s all built around… call and response… it embraces constant communication, only some of it verbal, among performers, and between performer and audience.”
Jump Rhythm® Technique gives the artistic performing world a refreshingly human approach to movement that teaches any body that moves how to be the best we can be as people – fully alive, self-aware, sharing members of a group. Share with us!

What Do You Want To Be When You Give Up?
A play about letting go.
A rehearsal between two actors turns into explosions of angst, politics, literature, motherhood, forgiveness, and love — with snatches of song, a handful of dances, rants about life, and impassioned appeals to both the moon and Jane Austen.
Words, staging, movement
Connecting to the earth.
Connecting to oneself.
Connecting to each other.
Billy Siegenfeld turns himself inside out, as all artists do, and lets us see the world through him. His plays as well as the rhythm-sharp songs and dances he builds into them show us human character in cooperation and conflict. They feature humans acting in situations which inspire emotions – and who are therefore free to be themselves showing those emotions. The results are universal: we recognize the feelings – of joy, friendship, alienation, mistrust, loss – from our own lives, and see them expressed in speech, sound, and movement onstage by people who remain unique. If good art lets us see something new, ands great art lets us see in a new way, then Billy Siegenfeld cavorts in the latter category. See his work and feel restored.
