Assistant Editor Sienna interviews theatre-maker and festival producer Jose Canseco about his experience co-producing a digital arts festival amid Covid-19 and lockdown in the UK. Jose tells us more about the vision behind Virtual Variety Fest and how it has created an online community of international artists during a time of job-loss and isolation. Jose also advises budding theatre-makers on his experience of the theatre industry.
We interviewed Jose and his co-producer Maria Cuervo on Voice voicemag.uk/interview/7149/interview-with-the-creators-and-producers-of-virtual-variety-fest. Jose’s theatre company is @rosecomptheatre on Instagram.
