Telemachus

Telemachus

Telemachus is a sister project to Odyssey. Aimed at 16 to 24 year olds, Telemachus is an inclusive group for young people with and without learning disabilities who are adventurous, and love to create and perform. 

The members meet each wednesday inline with the accademic calendar, exploring new skills and pushing their own boundaries. 

Currently the group is working toward their debut production, Stay Down. Inspired from Odyssey's Second Star to the Right (December 2017), Stay Down explores a world that is stifling imagination, play and creativity.

Both pieces will be presented as a double bill 30 Nov - 02 Dec 2017. 

Telemachus are in the process of raising funds towards Stay Down. Find out how to support them.
