"Does such a thing even exist?"

Apparently, yes. A google search of "nonparametric manova" turns up a
permutation test: Austral Ecology (2001) 26, 32–46.  A new method for
non-parametric multivariate analysis of variance, by  Marti J.

The test isn't implemented in Stata. And, "nonparametric" doesn't mean
"robust". To quote the paper (p. 37): "Like its univariate
counterpart, which is sensitive to heterogeneity of variances, this
test and its predecessors that use permutations.... will also be
sensitive to differences in the dispersions of points, even if the
locations do not differ."
