Non-binary, Asexual, Biracial AND Neurodivergent? Utter Mess! A show about labels and the difference between the words that confine us and the words that set us free.

ARTEMIS: UTTER MESS welcomes you to join Artemis Muñoz as they unpack their journey to self acceptance live on stage. This show is for anyone who has ever wondered where they belong or been confused about living in a world that takes issue with words of identity and community but is keen to put us in the wrong boxes nonetheless. In this one-hour, one-enby show featuring nine original songs, Artemis looks over their journey to self discovery as a non-binary, asexual, bi-racial and neurodivergent person through song, story and several excellent puns.

“Thoughtful and thought provoking. Hilarious and sad at the same time, but so damn creative. I’ve seen some unboxing videos on YouTube but I’ve never seen anyone unbox their own character on stage, being 100% honest, while wearing a dinosaur onesie! Art has given us a look into their world. What an amazing person! A unique piece of art!”
