Surveillance Camera Players

The group Surveillance Camera Players [SCP] was founded by Bill Brown, Susan Hull, and various other situationist-inspired activists in New York [USA] in November 1996. Since then, the anarchist group has given over 40 performances directly in front of surveillance cameras, mostly in New York City. But the group has also performed in other American cities, and there are now affiliate SCP groups in Tempe, Arizona and San Francisco [USA], Bologna [I], Stockholm [S] and in Lithuania [LT].
