Ham&Cheesomelet/ William Shakespeare/Ming Wong

"Whether 'tis nobler in the mind..."

 

This piece is an extension of Ham&cheesomelet, a video work by Ming Wong in which the words to be or not to be that is the question are endlessly repeated in the wrong order.

For this version, the 12 year old actor learnt Hamlet's soliloquy and then performed a vocal deconstruction of it.

Source materials from the Sound Archive that inspired this extract include recordings of Shakespeare's Sonnets by Dame Edith Evans and other great British stage actors.
