His shift between the two characters is remarkable, at times switching between the two rapidly, only using the well-utilised varying lighting and sound cues from Robbie Butler and Julian Starr.

‘Immersion that pushes the boundaries of traditional theatre’

In the case of Fizzy Sherbet, the play becomes a purely aural experience, with soundscapes and voice manipulation by sound designer Julian Starr creating an incredible, immersive experience – even without the visuals.

The production goes to show how powerful sound can be in engrossing listeners, pushing the boundaries of what might be considered ‘theatre’ in the traditional sense.

The swimmer is played by acclaimed Swiss actor Irene Jacob, whose richly mature, slightly accented voice, combined with Caridad Svich’s rhythmic language and Julian Starr’s sound design, makes it easy to imagine limbs steadily powering through water.
