Yon Natalie Mik [miːkə] works as a performer, writer and researcher of dance and performance art. She was trained in Ballet before pursuing her graduate degree in Asian Studies with focus on gender and East-Asian history. Her Ph.D. in Performing Arts examines the choreographic use of spectrality as an artistic strategy for reparative historiography. She is currently based in Berlin and Los Angeles.

Mik’s practice is led by ideas of aesthetic documenting and performative witnessing with particular interest in their choreographic process. Her live and video performances present dancerly bodies that reenact and comment on historically and critically neglected subjects and their representation in the information age.

Mik also co-organizes The Invisible Archive, a peer-reviewed journal publication that promotes artist-led discourse and critique around performance and time-based art. The journal is committed to embrace both academic and non-academic contributors and readers.
