A co-creative anthropological journey describing the biography in context of Didier Lalaye alias Croquemort, a slam artist and medical student from Chad. Through the concept of vital conjunctures the research shows how the life of Didier is influenced and connected to the broader social environment (ICT, youth developments, and politics in Chad). A multi-medial project in which the songs and performances of Croquemort play a key role.
