Thursday 11th April 2013 sees musicians from Nairobi School (Old and New) on one stage at the Michael Joseph Centre. The concert, apart from being a wonderful evening of music-making, is aimed at raising awareness of how important music is in the government school curriculum. You’ll be surprised at how many fantastic Kenyan musicians have come out of the Kenyan government school system. The evening includes the following groups.
‘The Morans’ are a brass group consisting of players ranging from University lecturers, Music teachers and Music students. The group was formed about a year ago and plays a wide range of musical styles ranging from works from the Renaissance Period to present day works. Members of this group are also involved in other musical groups such as the ‘Nairobi Orchestra’, ‘The National Youth Orchestra of Kenya’ (KNYO) and ‘The OCs’. Some of them also teach in Nairobi’s Korogocho slums under the Ghetto Classics programme run by the Art of Music Foundation.
‘The OCs’ are members of the Old Cambrian Society (Kenya). This society is the alumni organization for Nairobi School. ‘The OCs’ consists of alumni from the school, ranging between 1978 up to class of 2012. Group members are committed to raising Music Education standard at the school. Several of them volunteer their time and resources in teaching the current students. They are also involved in other musical groups such as the ‘Nairobi Orchestra’, ‘The National Youth Orchestra of Kenya’ (KNYO) and ‘The Morans’. Some of them also teach in Nairobi’s Korogocho slums under the Ghetto Classics programme run by the Art of Music Foundation. This group is a few months old and hopes to keep growing as more students graduate from the school.

The enigmatic center of the play is Pinon, a hermit who 18 years ago locked himself away in his seaside house after possibly cutting his wife into small pieces and permanently scarring the face of Gratia, a local prostitute. Now he sits at the edge of the sea cliff, observing the would-be suicides who come to this lonely spot.
They include Sebastian, a nervous young man with a heart condition who has just been jilted, and Daniel, who is suffering from questions over his sexuality and abandonment by his parents when he was a child. The third visitor is Vera, a runaway bride who comes to see Pinon out of curiosity after hearing his story from a hotel porter.
Bauer explores variations on his title theme. Sebastian asks Pinon to move into the light so he can see his eyes. Vera wonders to an unseen companion how she must appear in their eyes. The porter begs Vera to let him watch her change her clothes. Along the way Bauer weaves the characters’ lives together, in “La Ronde” fashion, shaping ever-changing onstage and offstage duets. In this complex intertwining, Pinon lives in a house he won from the porter in a card game; the porter relates Pinon’s history to Vera; Sebastian wants Vera; Daniel wants Sebastian; Pinon wants to be Daniel’s substitute father figure.
