The creative boundaries of burlesque, exploring the strange, the beautiful, the comedic, and occasionally the absurd. A performer with expansive range who utterly embodies every fibre of each of her wild, endearing, theatrical, imaginative and kooky characters.
Since 2011 Amourous Ava has romped gleefully across stages large and small throughout New Zealand, Australia, Canada and Europe. An Auckland-based performer, her moves are as filthy as some of the local dive bars she has performed in. She was voted ‘Most Innovative’ in the New Zealand Burlesque Industry Awards the Golden Garters 2014 and 2015, and awarded ‘Favourite Costume’ in 2015 and 2017. She was also awarded ‘Most Terrifying’ at Grand Tease 2016, of which she is perversely proud.
