Iain 'Ewok' Robinson was born on September 14, 1981 in Durban, South Africa. He completed his Bachelor of Arts Degree in 2003 at the University of Natal Durban with majors in Drama and Performance and English. He is a member of the hip-hop crew Illuminating Shadows. As a poet and MC, Ewok has worked consistently with the Flatfoot Dance Company on various productions including Busy Being Blue (2004).

In 2006 he debuted with his one-man theatre piece ONE MIND, ONE MOUTH, ONE MIC, which combines HipHop and theatre styles in a dramatized long poem. SPITFIRE (2007) is his second one-man show, which works along the same lines as its predecessor.
