We’ve had some quiet themes of late. Now it’s time to get loud. “Battles” brings you fantasy rooted in lust and legend; wizards in confrontation across their highlands; team sports that swirl with hues and sound pulled up from neurological depths; recollections of warfare and troubled friendship; and conflict on the domestic scene, as well (but no less wrenching).
