After severall success, albums and a performance in Eurovision (Las Vegas) Martin steps now into the theater scene, together with the comedian Kristoffer Appelquist , he directed and wrote a script with Martin, and we are invited to an evening with a lot of music varied with the pain, longing and the joy of being grown up in an unusual large family.
The artist Martin Stenmarck has received questions about his big family throughout his career and has always been striving to find fun answers to how they are living with eleven siblings. But with a mother who was a true heroine and also slave under her impulses, Martin tells herself about what it is like to grow up like the ”Familjen Annorlunda” with constantly new addresses, constantly new dads and new little children.
The performance "Syskekärlek - count with noise" is premiered at Maximteatern in Stockholm on October 5, and then headed out on a nationwide tour in the fall and winter.
When the tickets to the show were released a first single was released too. The song is called ”Ingen annan” and it is specially written for the performance of Martin himself together with Andreas Moe and David Björk. A contagious pop song with a scent of summer.
