The Art Police

monalisaPresented in association with South East Arts

The Art Police investigate the state of the arts and report anything that is overly arty, pretentious or in bad taste. This street theatre performance aims to ensure that members of the public are safe from art at all times.

The Art Police have performed at exhibition openings, art events, festivals and fundraising events with their mix of improvised theatre, street art and fun. If you have something specific in mind, we are happy to tailor our performance to your needs.

Do you have a festival, exhibition opening or other arty event that needs “policing” by the Art Police? A modest fee to cover our costs is requested. Advance notice of at least one month is appreciated.
