Steve Cohen was arrested on Tuesday on a busy public
square a stone's throw from the Eiffel Tower.
Sporting platform shoes, dressed up as a bird and with a
cord wrapped around his penis and attached to the rooster, he was able to dance
for around 10 minutes before police stepped in.
He was detained all day and has now been ordered to
appear in court on 16 December, treatment which has been greeted with outrage
by his lawyer, Agnes Tricoire.
Stressing that Cohen is an established artist who is due
to appear in the upcoming Autumn Festival in the French capital, she said Cohen
was portraying his personal situation "shared between his native South
Africa and the France he now lives in”.
"His detention was a disgrace," she added.
"Imagine, France throwing artists in prison!"
