The Duke Ellington School of the Arts Literary Media and Communications and Dance departments present "Rompe", an evening of original spoken, film, and dance narratives. Beginning with an original adaptation of Lorraine Hansberry's iconic, "Raisin in the Sun", this presentation puts gentrification in modern day Washington, D.C. front and center. It will address the ways artists run interference and provide a counter to those things that would fragment, dilute, pollute, and break our communities.

This performance contains strong language and mature content.
