Shadow puppetry is part of the rich theatrical traditions of many Southeast Asian countries. Colonizers and travelers from France encountered this art form in the eighteenth century and brought it back to Europe with them under the name ombres chinoises (literally "Chinese shadows", though the French mainly imitated Indonesian, Thai and Burmese styles.)

These ombres chinoises were particularly popular in England and France from the eighteenth century until the end of the nineteenth century.

French puppet masters Caroline Borderies and Christian Barthod revive this cross-cultural art form by interpreting classical Asian folk tales with their own distinctive French flair.
