PURE Reflections: Beauty Reimagined. Friday, April 12th

NEW YORK, April 8, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- PURE Reflections: Beauty Reimagined, a theatrical dance performance about girls and women confronting and overcoming the obstacles to cultivating a healthy body image, on Friday April 12, 2013 at 7:30pm at A. Philip Randolf High School in NYC.

Twenty million women suffer from a clinically significant eating disorder at some time in their life [1] and ten million women battle anorexia or bulimia. [2] because of the beauty myth [3] , an obsession with physical perfection that traps the modern woman in an endless spiral of hope, self-consciousness, and self-hatred as she tries to fulfill society's impossible definition of "the flawless beauty."

World renowned belly dancer and P.U.R.E. (Public Urban Ritual Experiment) Co-Founder and Artistic Director, Kaeshi Chai draws upon influences as diverse as comedy improvisation, mime, contemporary, hip-hop, world-fusion belly dance, as well as her own personal struggles with self empowerment to shed light on this dark corner of the human experience. The result is a fast-paced, entertaining and uplifting show featuring a cast of 18 adult and teen dancers and the live vocals of Kristin Hoffmann.  PURE Reflections serves as a living, breathing testament to the healing power of art.
