MARCEL MARCEAU
(1923 - 2007)

 
 
     

Universally considered the world's greatest contemporary mime artist, Marcel Marceau was a true legend.  Throughout a career spanning nearly sixty years, the French-born Marceau achieved notoriety beginning in the late 1940's, and brought the art of mime to audiences worldwide with continuous touring of his stage show and appearances in film and on television.  His work had a tremendous influence on the art, and earned him some of the highest honors of his native France and countries abroad.  In addition to his work as a mime artist, Marceau was also a teacher, author, and painter.
