Queen of the New Zealand Burlesque Festival 2019 and The Great DIY BurlesKiwi 2019, Amourous Ava pushes the creative boundaries of burlesque. She is your delightfully comedic and glamourously absurd Vulva Queen. Amourous Ava is a performer with expansive range who utterly embodies every fibre of each of her wild, endearing, theatrical, imaginative and offbeat characters.
Amourous Ava has romped gleefully across stages large and small throughout New Zealand, Australia, Canada and Italy. She has performed in front of The Right Honourable Helen Clark, and scandalised Waiheke Island with her butt bells. An Auckland-based performer, her moves are as filthy as some of the local dive bars she has performed in.
She was the New Zealand Burlesque Festival Highness of Hustle 2018; won the Best Costume crown at the Taormina Burlesque Festival 2018 (Italy); is a three-time winner of the New Zealand Burlesque Industry ‘Most Innovative’ Golden Garter Award, 2014, 2015 & 2019; and won the Golden Garter for International Recognition, 2018.
