They deliver messages every evening to the 350 residents of the residence.
Valéria Cardullo and Alex Repain are actors. Since the start of confinement, they have been transformed into town criers to carry messages and announcements to confined residents every evening in a residence in the 7th arrondissement of Lyon.
This is an initiative which, in the era of instant communication via social networks, projects us back a few centuries. Every evening at 7 p.m., the two actors put on their big red jackets. After a neighbor has beaten the recall with his djembe, they deliver to the residents of this residence at their windows personal messages, announcements intended for the community: “Does anyone have an exercise bike that we can leave in the garden so that everyone can take it in turns?”. A neighbor baker spreads the message of his ability to deliver baguettes and croissants …
The two actors collect the announcements by email and shout them the same evening. This is how, on this day, the entire residence wished a happy birthday to young Sandra.
It’s an exceptional moment of human warmth
Comedian Alex, who, advised by a sports coach, also shows some exercises to stay in shape, did not expect such success.
I think that there is a surge of solidarity that is beginning, of courage and of strength to be given between us.Actor
While a neighbor came down to play the violin that evening after the auction, Valéria and Alex assure her, they will continue to be messengers until the confinement ends.
