Tixi and Moxo is a children's show about a little Italian girl who is
off school sick. Whilst in the process of doing her English
homework, her favourite comic book characters magically come
to life and start speaking English. Suddenly the little girl speaks
English too but can't decide which of the characters is good and
which is evil. It's an interactive show perfomed in English by
Italian actors who play with the different sounds between
English and Italian. It's a funny piece about good and evil,
honesty and truth, with a surprise ending.
