This project captures the story of Didier Lalaye a.k.a. Croquemort, slam artist and medical doctor from Chad, between 2013 and 2016. Following his path during this period involves exploring many itineraries that crossed the same scenario, going far beyond what both the researcher and the subject of the research had initially expected. Using an innovative format, the story of this anthropological journey is presented here in an attempt not to hide but rather to highlight the unpredictability that marked the whole process. Reasoning in accord with the concept of vital conjunctures (Johnson-Hanks 2002), the project focuses on the itinerary of a single person that quickly becomes a way to disclose a moreAcomplex story. Broader themes such as Chadian politics, new Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs), and the aspirations of the youth in Africa enter into the scenario, imposing a reflection on the relations between society and voices on the ground. The fluidity of the research, the unexpected encounters, the embracing of the unexpected: the field becomes a complex scenario that is constantly transformed into text, pictures, photographs, and other virtual spaces, while an anthropological research project becomes a story of friendship and co-creation. http://croquemort.bridginghumanities.nl/
