Play the police

Street artists tend to have an issue with authority.

No one likes being told what to do, and this is magnified with the heroes who go out into public places to entertain strangers.


All over the world there are confrontations and legal issues surrounding public performance. In the middle, you’ll find: The Artist, and The Policeman.


Our favorite type of artist will try to involve the law officers to make a great show even better.


There is none better at this skill that than the wonderful Adrian Schvarzstein.


With his character: Green Man; he’s learned rather than fight the police, better to play the police.


We salute you Green Man. May you continue to bring anarchy and play wherever you may roam.
