Marceau, Marcel (märsel' märsō') [key], 19232007, French mime. Marceau studied under Charles Dullin and Étienne Decroux in Paris. He gained renown in 1947 with the creation of Bip, a sad, white-faced clown with a tall, battered hat. Marceau and his Compagnie de Mimodrame have performed frequently in the United States since 1955, most recently in 2000. In 1978 he founded the Ecole de mimodrame de Paris. He has made several films, including Un jardin public (1955). See G. Mendoza, The Marcel Marceau Alphabet Book (1970).
