A new audio work conceived especially for Glasgow International by Rosie’s Disobedient Press, Teneu asks vital questions about the relationship between the festival and the city. Paying close attention to under-represented people, spaces and queer enclaves, the work combines field recordings with methods of improvisation and collage to sustain a process of collective writing. As it develops, the work forms a direct response to the actions, events, conversations and concerns of Glasgow during festival time.
Teneu borrows its title from the work’s narrator and carer: Teneu, a legendary Christian saint also known as St Enoch, the fabled mother of Glasgow and also one of the city’s largest shopping centres.
