Quantum Yang-Mills theory can be rewritten in terms of gauge-invariant variables: it has the form of the so-called BF gravity, with an additional `aether term. The BF gravity based on the gauge group SUN is actually a theory of high spin fields up to J=N with high local symmetry mixing up fields with different spins - like in supergravity but without fermions. At N going to infinity one gets a theory with an infinite tower of spins related by local symmetry, similar to what one has in string theory. We, thus, outline a way to derive string theory from a local Yang-Mills theory in the large N limit.
