Cartoon de Salvo celebrates 15 years of experiment
10th April 2012
INTERVIEW: BRIAN LOGAN, ALEX MURDOCH and NEIL HAIGH
Three members of Cartoon de Salvo speak to Diana Damian about the two shows marking their 15th birthday, Made Up at Soho Theatre, a show improvised from scratch, and The Irish Giant at Southwark Playhouse, based on the true story of Charles Byrne, as well as recollecting the company’s cultural history and commitment to rural touring. Recorded at Camden People’s Theatre, 27 March 2012.
Improvised work is usually seen as a sub-section of the comedy sector, and we set ourselves the challenge to overcome that. We reserve the right to call off the humour and go for tender and meaningful storytelling. We want to tell a good story, and keep it fresh.
