Join us for a roundtable discussion with the composers of A WORTHY MIRROR, moderated by poet and critic danilo machado. This roundtable will explore how A WORTHY MIRROR translates lyric poetry into new compositions, forefronts female and anonymous femme voices in medieval canon, and reflects upon themes of gender, self, and relationships across time.
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.
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!
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.
Join us on February 7th at 6pm for a roundtable discussion with the composers of A WORTHY MIRROR, a commissioning project from early music revivalists Alkemie that puts 12th-century poet-composers in conversation with their modern counterparts. Moderated by poet and critic danilo machado, this roundtable will explore how A WORTHY MIRROR translates lyric poetry into new compositions, forefronts female and anonymous femme voices in medieval canon, and reflects upon themes of gender, self, and relationships across time.
A WORTHY MIRROR world premieres at National Sawdust on February 25th.
Presented by National Sawdust’s MOTIF, a digital-first platform of arts, innovation, and ideas presented by National Sawdust to engage the arts through a filter of human rights, access, participation, and equity.

Alkemie is passionate about exploring and celebrating the vibrant and timeless sounds of the past. Our musical journey transports us to the world of medieval court and folk music, and we are fervently committed to dismantling the barriers that have traditionally separated these two domains and our present experience. Comprised singer-performers playing two dozen instruments–including vielles (early fiddles), harps, psaltery, scheitholt (early zither), recorders, douçaines & dulcians (early double reeds), bagpipes, and percussion— Alkemie’s performance at the Indianapolis Early Music Festival was lauded as “enchanting” and “indicating [the] future health of the field of early music.”
