29 May: Marie-Lydie Nokouda
In times of distance we grow closer together. It’s the perfect opportunity to connect and for some reconnect. Use your voice, your body, spirit and mind. Use your ability to make others laugh! That is what this is!
For 12 hours, I play the role of Camille Cloud, a well-known business manager and entrepreneur, therapist, go-getter, fitness instructor and author. She is the owner of a product line including skin care products, and then she has her very own column, where she receives letters daily from bizarre personalities who, unlike herself, cannot find the way to living the good life.
Due to the virus, Camille Cloud’s mailbox has been empty, while her inbox has grown tremendously with emails from readers. To no longer sit glued to the screen for many hours, she has asked her readers to submit their letters to her random places in Copenhagen. Then she will read them out loud and answer them via live-stream.
Be warned! Camille Cloud is honest, outspoken and tough in her answers. She is popular and has a lot of fans, and of course, one of them is stalking her. Does she meet him or her on this expedition?
