What is MADx ?

MADx is a celebration of our human spirit.
and what it takes to free ourselves of what or who others would have us be –
to connect and have some fun together too.

MADx is a performance based get together

If you want to perform, share your stuff:
Poetry | Short Story | Spoken Word | Songs | Stand Up | Stuff not beginning with ‘S’ or ‘P’

  • Some of our performers are old hands and Pros,
  • Most are not.
  • Many are finding the courage to stand or sit in the spotlight for the first time anywhere.
  • Maybe highlighting how we need to change, or you’ve changed…
  • Or maybe you want to highlight some things you like about the last few months or how its inviting us to reflect on fucking up the world and what you’re changing…
  • Maybe you wanna rail against the incompetence of our ‘glorious leaders,
    rant about COVID  hair,
  • Or maybe you just want to say “FUCK YOU COVID.”

Performance slots are typically ten mins.

We ask of you that you choose

  • not to stereotype and objectify or dehumanize others..
  • not to tell others who to be or what to do..that’s about it.

What is MADx?

MADx is a performance night – all kinds of performance.

Stand-Up | Short Story | Song | Poetry | Stuff not beginning with S or P

MADx is about finding our voice, witnessing each other as we do-
and doing it in a generous way that doesn’t rely on using whatever power we have to put others down, or telling others who and how to be.

We welcome all performers, especially new and first-time performers..
We offer a kind and generous community audience.
[And a free MADx button.]

If you want to perform, drop us a line, either via the “Pitch us” page or email us via the contact page.

MADx: its a bit mad and it has an x in it.

Gert Big, Yuge thanks to Sammie and everyone at The Imperial Pub for their support, its a big part of what makes MADx work.
