No one quite knows how the rise of technology and the digital realm is affecting humanity, but that hasn’t stopped artists from trying to figure it out. One foray into the subject matter comes from Cooperative Performance Milwaukee, who’ll stage Don Russell’s devised work iTopia in October. The one-act follows four characters as they attempt to navigate through a world of increasingly virtual communication, adding dance and poetry to traditional dramatic scenes.
