Marco Martens - Sterrenkind

Three stars for a book in the newspaper.

Four for the hotel you stayed in, two for the restaurant where you ate.

Two stars for having your beef burger for life.

We have become accustomed to giving everything a rating. But what do those stars actually say? And do you want your child to become a star child?

The relationship between writer and performing artist Marco Martens and the Dutch school system has always been somewhat difficult. He really learned something from the training that hip-hop offered him. It made him the versatile storyteller he is today.

But now he is forced back into the school system. After all, his daughter has to go to school and that means report meetings at least twice a year.

One advantage: this new experience with school did provide good fuel for his performance Sterrenkind, in which Marco makes an impassioned plea for being more and measuring less.

A call for space for everyone who does not yet feel heard in the classroom.
