About the Company
Yao is a mischievous little girl who loves playing with her dad. But every morning Daddy has to dress up in his suit, pick up his briefcase and go to work. One day, Yao, unhappy with her father’s departure, grabs his overcoat and accidentally pulls a thread that leads to the start of a magical world of adventure and discovery.
Join Yao on her ingenious journey to find out what’s waiting for her at the end of the thread… YAO YAO is a playful blend of reality and imagination, using interactive screen art technology and live music.
