Gong Xi Fa Ca!

This traditional Mandarin greeting means "wishing you prosperity." The SeyNah blog started in 2009 with the Year of the Mutt. So it is appropriate for us to welcome 2012 - the Year of the Dragon.

Prosperity is an illusive concept. It can be a luxury of time, money, friends. For me, a luxury if following your passion. So my wish for all in 2012 is Follow Your Passion! -posted by Marie

Zoology-New Dance from Chafin Seymour

It is a rare moment, but if you move quickly you can see Chafin's latest work on-line.

Zoology is the product of a yearlong immersion and collaboration between the cast and choreographer. Inspired by the music of Animal Collective, the piece is meant to reflect the perspective of a generation of young people with an overwhelmingly positive outlook in an otherwise challenging world. Zoology takes a look at us, not necessarily as animals, but recognizing that our social developments and societal habits are not all that different.

An excerpt will be performed at the Kid's Cafe Festival in Brooklyn on March 3, 2012
