Philippe Beau is an "SHADOW ARTIST," a specialist in Chinese shadows and "ombromania" (choreographed hand ballet).  He is one of the rare artists who practices this technique today.  For more than 20 years, he has practiced magic and manipulated light to create shows.  A performer, creator and artistic advisor, he has become a recognised specialist.  Film and theatre directors and choreographers regularly call on him to create a specific work based on shadows and magic.
