Compensation depicts two Chicago love stories, set a century apart, a deaf woman and a hearing man face the specter of death. They also confront intraracial differences across lines of gender, class, education and ability. Through innovative use of sign language and title cards evoking the silent film era, Compensation is accessible to deaf and hearing audiences. Preceded by Dark Exodus, director Iverson White visualizes the migration of African Americans from the rural South to the industrial North in sepia tones, capturing the atmosphere of early 20th century America. In person: Iverson White. Tickets are $10 and can be purchased online.

About the Festival:

The Pacific Standard Time Performance and Public Art Festival celebrates the history of postwar public artworks, large-scale spectacles, expansive performances, and small-scale interventions in the public sphere in Los Angeles. Through a contemporary lens, the Festival employs a series of adaptations, re-inventions, and commissions that are inspired by the installation and performance artists working in Los Angeles between 1945 and 1980.

Throughout the 11-day festival, a group of new public artworks will be on view throughout the city. In addition, new performances will premiere every day, including outdoor visual spectacles, experimental theater and sound art, social and political interventions, and media art. A nightly after-party, Black Box, will provide a space for socializing, and include surprise performances each evening.
