About David McIntosh and battery opera
David McIntosh is a writer, performer and artistic producer of battery opera.

Described as “sexy, propulsive, deeply metaphorical”, battery opera’s award- winning work interrogates the contemporary body as a site of intersecting and displaced histories and habits. Underlying the practice of battery opera is a dynamic dialogue and mutual attraction between opposing tensions, an exchange that is sensitive to the nuances of power and influence in the socio-political history we have inherited. In battery opera, forms and traditions meet, merge and collide to celebrate the power and fragility of a human body that breathes, speaks, sings, thinks, moves, dances.
