Nican Robinson

Actor, Dancer

Nican Robinson is absolutely ecstatic to have found a home in joining the family at Crowded Fire Theater.  Nican is a dance and theater enthusiast. He began his journey in theater in 2015 as an ensemble member in the wildly successful Broadway Scale Musical, Cuba Libre (Artist Repertory Theater), where he also assisted esteemed choreographer, Maija Garcia (Chi-Raq, FELA!) in teaching the entire cast Rueda de Casino (Cuban Salsa). He relocated from New York to Oakland, CA where he has been seen in numerous productions: Best of PlayGround Festival (SF Playground), Abominable (SF Playground/Symmetry Theatre), Hunting Love (Flight Deck/Local Dystopia), The Shipment (Crowded Fire Theater), and understudying The Last Tiger in Haiti (Berkeley Repertory Theater). He has trained in numerous styles of Cuban dance, including Afro-Cuban Folklore and Son, in both Cuba and the United States, and has taught Casino and Rueda de Casino classes in Shanghai and Beijing, China. Nican is a proud Golden Bear alumnus (University of California, Berkeley). You can follow him on Instagram at @nicanrobinson.

The Shipment

Crowded Fire Theater is a family. Not only is there talent and artistic vision, but love, support, and motivation at every level. I’m proud to have found an artistic home.
