In theater, batten (also known as a bar or pipe) refers to a long metal pole suspended above the stage or the audience from which lighting fixtures, theatrical scenery, tabs or other curtains may be hung.

An electric is a batten with cables run above the pipe, often enclosed in a raceway. It generally has plugs for lights, DMX data cable, or audio built in which continue through a snake to dimmers, control boards, or patchbays.
