This project gathers a giant hairtail, an uncanny bird, a useless machine, a ball, and a body into an assemblage that moves and sings. It brings together some new researches and old knowledge about other perspectives of kinship, different ecologies and cosmologies. It takes art and choreography as a practice of being together, trying to raise other hypotheses and manners to live and die in this world.

RUN FAST, BITE HARD calls for its opposite. It is a search about kindness, proximity, coexistence, cooperation between different species, things, matters.
