We take a title from the audience and make up a brand new story, with a live score, from any place or time in the universe.
The Salvo's are on a quest to mess with the live theatre experience and have become one of the UK's best-loved theatre companies. Their hit shows include Meat and Two Veg, Pub Rock and the long-form impro show Hard Hearted Hannah and other stories. 2012 is Cartoon de Salvo's 15th Birthday and to celebrate they're staging two new shows representing two paradoxical passions - risk-taking impro and well-crafted storytelling. After Made Up the company stage The Irish Giant at the Southwark Playhouse May 23-rd to June 9th. southwarkplayhouse.co.uk
