AVANTI P&M is very pleased to announce that our wonderful actor FLORIAN GHIMPU has been cast

in a new series of X COMPANY, produced by CBC Canada


X COMPANY


X COMPANY is an emotionally-driven character drama, set in the thrilling and dangerous world of WWII espionage and covert operations. It follows the stories of five highly skilled young recruits - Canadian, American and British - torn from their ordinary lives to train as agents in an ultra-secret facility on the shores of Lake Ontario. These agents parachute behind enemy lines, where they're fair game for torture and execution. From elegant hotels to hellholes in the field, it's one risky operation after another, masterminded by the brains of Camp X.

A door, a bridge, an individual.

Each can connect or separate space, place, time and people. Bringing together a cast from Canada, England, France, Greece, Ireland, Italy, Scotland, Spain, Russia and Portugal, this devised ensemble piece reflects on otherness as interdependence.

The performers switched memories, reshuffled personal stories, gradually blurring the line between individual memories, merging each image into a common, kaleidoscopic vision of ourselves. In a moment in which bridges are abruptly being closed and islands are moving further away, 'I am because you are' invites the public to question identity building based on the fear of difference. This performance is where we see our future, a safe place in which collective memory is a land to build upon.

Directed by: David Silva, Award Winner Director at the International Theatre Festival FATAL with Othello by William Shakespeare, performed at National Theatre D. Maria II (Lisbon, Portugal) and Teatro Principal (Galicia, Spain). Award Winner Playwright with the play "Pinocchio & Red Riding Hood.
