Natalie Mik aka Yoniya (b. 1984, Duesseldorf / Germany) is a performer and writer based in Los Angeles and Berlin.

Mik's work aims to preserve and (re)enact embodied knowledge through dance and other bodily practices. She is also interested in the contemporary circulation and reproduction of dancerly and choreographic past knowledge. The sociopolitical and/or psychoanalytical existence of the performer and the audience are considered in order to explore issues of historiography, historicity, visibility politics, memory, identity and decolonization.
