TAA Programme / Rhaglen TAA

This programme is what we have planned so far – of course, you can just turn up and use the space on the day to make art, run a workshop, perform or skill-share. Things will be spontaneous and chaotic, but we’ve also managed to secure lots of awesome events to take place in this building which would otherwise be unused & empty. 

TAA Cardiff will be booze-free during the day time, to make sure it’s a child-friendly space and safe for people recovering etc. From dinner time when the meal is served, booze will be tolerated throughout the evening but if your a drunk twat you’ll be asked to leave! We will have a safer spaces policy in action – be nice to each other and everything will be awesome!

It all started in a park in Mumbai in 1995 with just 5 participants, and now there are over 10,000 laughter clubs in 73 different countries – just showing the  need to laugh around the world Laughter Yoga is based on the principal that your body doesnt know the difference between fake and genuine laughter.   As long as you are willing to laugh you will get the same psychological and physiological benefits of laughter. It is a combination of  deep yogic breathing and playful laughter exercises. It is usually practiced in groups where you can make eye contact and connect with your sense of child like fun.

The Dancing Queer 
What’s that? Belly dancers should have long hair and shave their legs and underarms? Well, not this one! Originally from the capital of Belly Dancing, Egypt, the hairy, pierced and tattooed queer dancer will give you a very oriental performance with a twist. “Although I don’t believe that neither I, nor anyone, needs to provide a reason to dance: I dance because where I come from being a belly dancer is considered to be shameful. I dance to break a stereotype of what a belly dancer “should look like”. I dance because it connects me to my roots and culture. I dance because it makes me happy. “
