Victorian Seniors Festival reimagined - Week 21 welcome from our hosts


Week 21: Kinship

Tristan Meecham and Bec Reid welcome us to the performances for Week 21. This week, the theme is kinship and we explore that theme with four incredible artists. A composer, theatre maker and physical performer, a theatre designer and puppeteer and two Victorian Senior Festival Italian icons join us this week and explore what kinship means, as spring sets and lambs are born and we start to look to our new horizons.

Victorian Seniors Festival reimagined Dan Witton

Week 21: Kinship

Dan Witton credits his supportive family and growing up in South Australia during the ‘Dunstan Decade’ for encouraging him to pursue a diverse career as an actor, physical performer and musician.

Victorian Seniors Festival reimagined Lizz Lethlean

Week 21: Kinship

As a teen, one of Lizz Lethlean’s favourite ways to pass the time was to climb up the large apricot tree in her backyard and settle against a large bough, guitar in hand, to play and sing for hours.

Victorian Seniors Festival reimagined Marcello and Pauline D'Amico

Week 21: Kinship

Musical couple Marcello and Pauline D’Amico have attracted such a strong following for their Victorian Seniors Festival performances over the past 15 years that even Marcello’s sister-in-law couldn’t get a seat to their packed out Deakin Edge show last year.
