Inflammations deals with chronic pain and fatigue, as well as, relief and sensuality that comes with easing the symptoms. Starting from the question of what expectations we have of hyperfunctional bodies on stage, three performers demand a place for unstable bodies - with all their risks and potentials, in dance as well as in society. Vulnerability becomes a catalyst for a new body, language and care economy.
