Pitch us …


We’re always recruiting rebel-performers

MADx by night – not afraid of the dark.

Right now we are accepting submissions and pitches for our next MADx by night…




MADx by Night : Fri 27th Oct  2017

Queen for the night.
Get your Queen on
Bring us your true Queen
So long as its true for you.

You can pitch your pitch to us by using the form below.

This helps us make sure we have the information we need to put together a great programme and to get in touch with you and follow up.

The  submission/ pitch  deadline is 29 Sep 2017
we will be contacting  performers shortly afterwards.

MADx is about voice and MADx is a conversation
Come, add your voice to the conversation.

We aim to have many voices – all performance slots will be  10 minutes 

Please note we cannot offer payment for performances.
Please note this event is not funded, it’s a fundraiser – any money we collect will be used to cover costs and to produce future MADx events.

What we offer

What we aim to offer is a supportive, intimate atmosphere to share from our unique experiences of being alive as human, and do it in ways that might be difficult to do “out there”.

A big part of how that works is the performers and how they bring what they bring to our stage and whole events…

Here’s what we ask…

MADx  Guidelines for performers

We welcome performers who…

  • rebel against perceptions, stereotypes and fixed mindedness
  • push boundaries and are not afraid of the dark
  • can speak to their own struggle living in this world, be who they are and who they need to be
  • are finding their voice, choosing their words and naming their world on their terms
  • speak their own truth without demeaning others not like them
  • respect and uphold the rights of each of us to do likewise
  • choose not to join that “chorus of someones who” love to tell others who to be and what to do
  • contribute to co-creating inclusive space in which we can all have a good time and include ourselves in the fun too 

Especially we value language that seeks to express human experience, and ask that

  • you choose not to use language that categorizes, stereotypes and disempowers, or diagnoses any of us.
  • you call yourself whatever you like, and refer to others by the most respectful name you can.

We prefer not to tell you or anyone else who to be, we do prefer non diagnostic language – because of the power that language holds over us and the power it has to reduce the space for other language, and to reduce the space in which we can express being human, and well, because it sucks like a big, sucky sucky-thing.

And if that’s a bit strange or new to you we’re happy to sit with you talk and help you figure out what that means for you, just contact us and let us know..

Send us your Pitch/ Submission

eg Storytelling, Stand-Up, Spoken Word, Song, Snake charming, Poetry, Dance

Please provide a descriptive outline of your performance you’d like to bring to MADx and how it fits with our theme
– usually three or four sentences will do it.
