Micah Figueroa

Micah Figueroa is Chicago based teaching artist, actor, director, and choreographer. As an actor, Micah was most recently in 20,000 Leagues Under the Seas and Moby Dick at Lookingglass Theatre. Micah is a frequent collaborator with Walkabout Theatre, having most recently performed in Tall Girl and the Lightning Parade and has worked with Writer’s Theatre, Erasing the Distance Theatre Company, First Floor Theatre, 20% Theatre Company, and Redmoon Theatre in Chicago. Regionally Micah has worked with the Denver Center for the Performing Arts, Shakespeare Dallas, Theatre Three, Kitchen Dog Theatre, Stolen Shakespeare Guild, and the Dallas Theatre Center. As a teaching artist, Micah has been fortunate to work with students ranging from kindergarten through college investigating and expanding their physical limits for nearly eight years. Micah has been fascinated by nonverbal communication since a very young age. He was inspired by his Grandfather “Pops” who spoke very little English and who instead used gesture and sound to tell intricate stories to him and his cousins. Specializing in physical theatre, Micah has strived to, like his Grandfather, not only to bridge the language divide but also to inspire students to communicate with their entire bodies and to safely eliminate “I can’t” from their vocabularies.
