This living deals with making visible
something that all women have suffered at some time and which is
hardly spoken about, as it takes place in a hidden manner: women's
rivalry, a key subject that has arisen these days in the
transition towards new roles and , especially, in women·s
development in the labour market, where the majority confess having
their worst enemies amongst their own female colleagues and/or bosses.
Via this scene placed in a real event that involves rivalry: the
queue for the opening day of a big store's January Sales, two actresses
play the role of two women who already know each other and who bump
into each other in the queue.
One plays the role of the tall, beautiful, young and successful
girl (so she's got all the ingredients to be rejected by the
rest) and the other, somewhat older woman rebukes her for having taken
her place. The two women exchange remarks and threats, making
those waiting in the same queue take part in the story.The dénouement
is imminent: the two finish up fighting just as the store doors open ,
capturing the attention of all the cameras.
