Live music by Mia Pixley and ensemble + dance performances by Kimberly Marie Olivier

About the performers

Mia Pixley, PhD, is a clinical psychologist and artist who uses her cello, voice, and musical performance to study and represent aspects of self and other, community, and the natural world. Bolstered by whimsy, humor, talent, and an appreciation for wild abandon, Pixley’s music gravitates toward the beauty hidden in sorrow, pain, and loss, and this beauty’s potential to inspire curiosity, wonder, rebirth (and a good time!). Pixley performs both as a soloist and with her dynamic ensemble of musicians: Bryan Simmons (keys/synth), Isaac Schwartz (drums), Kevin Goldberg (bass and composition), and Ian Mcardle (keys/synth). Her band has a fifth magical member, trapeze artist Shannon Collier Gray.

Kimberly Marie Olivier is a freelance dancer after having a successful 12-year ballet career with the San Francisco Ballet (2009–2021). Originally from New York City, she was a longtime student at Ballet Hispánico (1994–2006) and has a foundation of multiple dance forms, including: classical ballet, flamenco, salsa, and modern. She has also trained with Studio Maestro (2005–2007), San Francisco Ballet School (2007–2009), and her coach Charla Genn (2006–2021). Kimberly is currently a signed model and actress with Stars Management.
