Philippe Genty established his own company in 1968, having performed at the Bobino, Olympia, and Casino de Paris music halls. His regular creations for the Théâtre de la Ville in Paris were followed by highly successful world tours and brought a new dimension to his artistic production.

A creator of different manipulation techniques, he has been using puppets for the manipulation of space and perception, and movements of materials and forms to create fantastic illusions.
