“Not everybody who is grating old bread is making breadcrumbs for a Wiener Schnitzel” (Yoko Tawada). 

A grater, transformed into a musical instrument, accompanies Yoko Tawada’s and Aki Takase’s performance and marks their rhythms of speech.  Internationally renowned jazz pianist Aki Takase lets ping pong balls bounce on the strings of her grand piano while German-Japanese author Yoko Tawada reads her pun-filled melodious poetry.
