LIVE ARTS FOR THE EVERYDAY – APPLICABLE THOUGHT #55 – Prompt

In theatre the prompter follows the script and instructs the performers if they forget lines, an action or a position on stage. This role has practically disappeared in modern theatre; if any prompts are needed, they are usually given by the stage manager. We often use prompts in everyday life: reminders from social media, our mobile phones or blogs and the more classical post-it on the fridge door or changing a ring to the other hand. These prompts usually remind us about practical things that we want to do. How could we prompt ourselves when we are wanting to make way for new thoughts, emotions or practices?
