What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.

‘Apollonian Circles’ is a multi-disciplinary musical concert and art installation experience that combines  elements of electronic music, jazz, theater, and performance art. Each performance hinges on audience  participation and improvisation guiding an ever-changing narrative of artistic expression – we are all  participants reflecting one another’s experience as if in a hall of mirrors.

This project explores the very definition of what audiences have come to expect from a traditional concert.  From the moment they arrive, attendees are transported to a mysterious dream-like space where the  unexpected can happen. In the literal center of the room is a large table (decorated with other-worldly  artifacts and ornaments) that is both stage and set piece for the performers and audience to gather.

Apollonian Circles is a constantly evolving musical live work, where concert formats and the relationship  between music, musicians and audiences are explored and challenged. Apollonian Circles grow out of a  constant longing for integration. We bring together artists, performers and ultimately audiences in a space  that feels wide open – yet artistically distinct and defined.

The music is composed and arranged by the Danish multi-instrumentalist Mikkel Hess and performed by his  band (“Hess Is More”) comprised of musicians from Copenhagen and New York and featuring notable  guests such as acclaimed singer Nomi Ruiz. The scenography is developed by Danish theater luminaries  Christian Friedländer and Dicki Lakha in collaboration with award winning director Tue Beiring and  costumes by fashion design superstar Henrik Vibskov.

Hess Is More started as a solo project for Danish artist Mikkel Hess and has over the years developed into a  circular transatlantic ensemble including musicians from Copenhagen, New York, and Berlin. Hess Is More  has released 9 albums and a long list of EP’s and singles – music sounding in the borderland between jazz,  kraut, electronica, pop, folk and more.

Hess Is More has a long tradition of interdisciplinary collaborations, including music for ballet, films, art installations and more. The ongoing interest in integrating music with other art forms has lately been  expressed in the concert series entitled “Apollonian Circles”.
