Bio

Public Health England is an executive agency of the Department of Health in the United Kingdom. Our wonderful friends at PHE (formerly known as the Health Protection Agency) at the research facility in Porton Down generously lent us bona fide haz mat suits for the Decontamination Chamber at Glastonbury 2011 . Two years later for our five week production of Brazil with the Secret Cinema, they showed us even more generosity by lending us three suits, half a dozen real self contained breathing apparatuses and a dozen genuine escape hoods for the actors and the audience to wear as they scoured the building for signs of radioactive, chemical or biological contamination.
