We are bombarded with sexualised images of women in the media on a daily basis, from H&M underwear ads to HBO's Game of Thrones. These are snapshots of a society which appears materialistic, consumer-driven, and obsessed with the perfect figure.

Ten Women, presented by Jackdaw at the Ovalhouse, examines the way women view themselves and their bodies, in the light of the influence of media images based on the idea that sex sells.
"What if the way women are portrayed, and how we are told we should look, is feeding a culture of critique and self-hatred?", asks writer and director Bethan Dear: "Have we forgotten what real is?"

TEN WOMEN, which contains adult themes and content, runs from 27-31 May at the Ovalhouse Kennington Oval, London SE11. On Tuesday 27 May, a post-show Q&A will be held with the cast and creative team. On Wednesday 28 there will be a post-show panel debate with influential feminist speakers on the theme: "Is it time we remembered real?"

The show is part of Ovalhouse's FiRST BiTES series of new performance pieces, currently in development and presented as work-in-progress showings.

The season opens with O NO! – a homage to Yoko Ono - by Jamie Wood, in collaboration with Wendy Hubbard and Dominic Kennedy, from 20-24 May.

FiRST BiTES continues with Travesty by Alex Swift from 11-14 June, The Ayn Lady, by Emma Kilbey, from 2-5 July, and How to Win Against History by Seiriol Davies from 9-12 July.

All tickets for FiRST BiTES are priced £5.
