to connect and have some fun together too.

MADx is a performance based get together

  • 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.

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.

Alex Arena
I have been singing since I was a child and composing music and writing for 6 years now. I love exploring many different themes, and usually sing about life, love, and bringing the awareness of stopping the emotional hurt from self-infliction or by others. I am always open collaborations, be it pop, EDM, acoustic or rock.


Corinna will be bringing some of her own songs to share with us.



Brings us readings from his unfolding story and couple of poems too.




Justin Zuccato
Surprise appearance by Justin who stormed it with some of his own songs and threw in a best-ever cover of the Undertones’ ‘Ever fallen in love…”

Cheers Justin, enjoy Toronno, eh?

Justin will also be playing at Basso Italian Restaurant on Queen East. Wed 30th from 8-10pm!
