In the professional world, interactions take place predominantly on the verbal and intellectual level. An assumption underlying this circumstance seems to be that language and intellectual exchange is somehow objective and universal while physical or emotional exchange is not. The notion of Somatic Intelligence suggests that even subtle physical exchange can serve as a much more direct tool to communicate and to identify unconscious behaviours, patterns, and projections affecting verbal discourse. In this roundtable we want to discuss ideas around the supposed objectivity of language and how insights from body work and movement can help establish a more complex, truthful, and clear exchange and understanding within a group. Naturally, the session will begin with a handful of playful physical exercises to illustrate this argument and to create a common point of departure.
