Paris police aren't dicks, they are just following orders, you can't perform on the street unless authorization has been given by the prefect or the town hall, which in Paris is so hard to get to be nonexistent. However quite often performers are tolerated, if they are not too noisy, not a obstacle on the pavement, and the cops are in a good mood.
Also your layout gives me a rather intolerable pain in the gulliver.
