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.

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.

 

Toshio

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

Cheers Justin, enjoy Toronno, eh?

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

The MADx Collective brings you…

[more details coming soon.. ]

MC Seema
Mistress of Ceremonies, MC Seema.

Seema is not a Princess.
She doesn’t need saving.
She is a Queen.
She’s got this shit handled.
The Queen 💎

 

Jason Finkelstein 
Jason only recently made his comedy debut. He likes to play the music when he’s not driving Senior Citizens to doctor’s appointments.
Now with 40 years of life experience under his belt he’s ready to share his unique take on stuff while standing up…

 

 

Jenny

Jenny enjoys making people have litgasms with her writing and recommends psychic protection for safer exposure and will be telling a new story called: “Story”.

 

 

 

 

 

The.JULIEST.1

JULIE – She’s got nothing queeny or halloweeny but she is the queen of fucking everything. The.Juliest.1 will perform her original piece called ‘Collective Responsibility’ in response to the question: ‘what does decolonize your mind mean to you’?

 

TOSHIO
Toshio works as a cog in a highly industrial machine.  He seeks respite and escape through the filling of an arcane notebook and the use of an old-fashioned font slate.  Once in a while he travels through portals and somehow finds his way back without anyone noticing.

 

 

 

 

 

WonderBloke n SuperDave
Aiming to be the best thing since sliced bread might not seem like setting the bar high but it can make for a life of some pretty good toast.

A wee glimpse on life viewed from inside the bread-bin, peering out through twin-lensed, white-sliced-bread-ness at a whole world of weird.
