The day after opening night of Chautauqua Theater Company’s As You Like It, Sepideh Moafi, who portrays protagonist Rosalind, prepares herself for the next performance with yoga on the stage of Bratton Theater. With lights dimmed and the theater cleared, she works, breathing deeply.
It helps her clear her mind, stay open and move into her body. Moafi works out six days a week.
Moafi emanates determination. When not exercising, she runs lines or analyzes the script. Operatically trained conservatory actor Moafi functions best when focused and in tune with herself.
