5 - 6 February 2022
ACEtravaganza is a variety show featuring Melbourne’s best asexual and aspec artists curated by comedienne and poet Nikki Viveca (ASEXUAL HEALING) and theatre and cabaret artist Artemis Muñoz (ASEXY: PROUD TO BE ME). This show puts the invisible orientation centre stage in a joyful celebration full of story, song and more!
The work is presented entirely by aspec artists, reflecting a perspective seldom seen on stage. More than a show, in a queering of the variety night tradition ACEtravaganza is also a community gathering, visual arts showcase and big ol’ ace party! Featuring first-time creatives alongside established artists, ACEtravaganza explodes stereotypes about the asexual community and boldly claims space for a group that is often erased from representations of queerness.
Join your hosts Nikki Viveca and Artemis Munoz as they paint Theatre Works purple and welcome to the space a sparkling line-up of artists from a diverse range of artforms. ACEtravaganza welcomes you to be part of this great ace-venture!

REVIEWS: 'Asexual Healing' by Nikki Viveca:
"Radiant charisma... Excels at enticing the audience into a comical and informative journey that really captivates."

"Earnest, engaging and informative – as well as absolutely hilarious." THE MUSIC
REVIEWS: Artemis Muñoz
“There is a charismatic ensemble trio… with Artemis Muñoz, this trio of anti-vaxxers left you uncomfortably convinced of their sincerity and plight. Muñoz also delighted with their stunning piano composition hypothesising ‘another universe’ in which such issues do not exist.” THEATRE TRAVELS (Breeders, 2020)
“…the comic tone is set by Muñoz… and the laughs don't stop for the next hour and half… The acting is uniformly engrossing.” SAMARA DUNSTON, WHAT DID SHE THINK (Helping Hands, 2019)
