Kintsugi - beauty in chaos...
Between slam, soul, funk and Afro sounds, YAO explores the topics of pain, resilience and hope in this personal and therapeutic show. Inspired by his new album of the same name (Kintsugi), he uses his talents as a lyricist and performer to transform his life's wounds into a sensory, poetic and musical immersion.
Kintsugi is the Japanese art of repairing broken pottery with gold - transforming the cracks, and the object itself, into a stronger and more beautiful work of art.
From the idea of making a 'kintsugi of man', this show will take you into intimate moments of fragility, vulnerability and introspection; sometimes raw, sometimes blunt, but always true and authentic.
After his last show NOMADE (from the album LAPSUS), presented more than 150 times in 7 different countries, and awarded "Show of the Year" at the Gala Trille Or 2019, YAO offers you a little beauty in the chaos with KINTSUGI.
