Yon Natalie Mik [miːkə] is an experimental dancer, choreographer and writer based in Berlin and Los Angeles. She studied Ballet before pursuing her graduate degree in Asian Studies with focus on East-Asian history and gender studies. Her Ph.D. in Performing Arts explores aesthetic strategies of reparative historiography by examining the choreographic use of spectrality/hauntology in contemporary performance art.

Mik’s choreographic practice is an ongoing research on how to reenact historically and critically neglected subjects through the medium of dance, the figure of the ghost and the material of the human body. Her performative writing practice (or text performance) uses poetic language, oral history, and other ways to contemplate about immaterial culture and embodied knowledge.

As the co-editor of The Invisible Archive, she is interested in writings that relate to questions of archiving, collecting and discussing performance and time-based art.
