Biz news: Yuja gets half an agentmain
The unmanaged Yuja Wang, abandoned by her last agent, has settled after weeks of dizzy deliberations, for a partial solution.
She will be agented in Asia by Sylvie Bouchard of the Japanese firm Kajimoto, and Sylvie will also look after her events in France.
The rest of the world has yet to be determined.
This half-pie solution makes her inevitably less attractive to the leading global agencies – all the hassle for half the revenues, as one manager puts it.
