Odyssey

Odyssey

Odyssey is an inclusive community group for adults with and without learning disabilities who share a passion for performance.

The group’s 25 core members continue to meet weekly to work on performance skills, leading towards an annual Christmas production that takes place in the Weston Studio at Wales Millennium Centre. Find out more about our most recent show - Hansel, Gedeon and the Grimms' Wood.

Odyssey has become an important training ground for actors with learning disabilities. Three members have gone on to perform professionally in Hijinx Theatre tours. Numerous others have progressed to paid employment as actors in our Forum Theatre pieces and workshop assistants on Outreach projects. Odyssey members also gain the opportunity to work with national and international artists to create performances for the Unity Festival and Hijinx Pods.

Odyssey are hard at work raising money for their 2019 festive production, The Curious Muchenss of Stuff and Nonsense . Find out how to support them.
