"We’re going to tell a story about a young English flutist. In 1651, the king of England Charles II was exiled to France. Well aware that exile could still be fun if you’re rich enough, Charles made sure to take a few of his favorite musicians with him. Our flutist, one Rosalind du Bois, disguises herself as a boy to join her teacher and the rest of the troupe. And she keeps a journal - with her thoughts about the journey, alongside some of the music she and the others played together. It’s perfect for us: music that’s cut up and reconfigured, adapted to the troupe’s small size. It’s also music by and for people between places, mixing French and English styles and traditions and languages. Join us in exploring it, and in finding the intimacy that comes from small ensembles, from traveling and living and eating and drinking together."
