Yon Natalie Mik is an experimental dancer, choreographer and writer based in Berlin and Los Angeles. She studied Ballet before gaining her graduate degree in Asian Studies with focus on East-Asian history. Her Ph.D. in Performing Arts discusses aesthetic strategies of historiography by exploring the choreographic use of hauntology in experimental performance.

Mik’s choreographic work presents an ongoing research on how to reenact historically and critically neglected subjects through the medium of dance and the figure of the ghost. She also employs a writing practice which involves the collecting of oral histories and discarded text artifacts as another way of documenting these subjects.

As the co-editor of the journal The Invisible Archive, she is interested in the question of collecting and distributing knowledge produced by performance and time-based art.
