UN\ROOTED casts a light from different artistic perspectives and cultural backgrounds on humankind's eternal quest for love, a home and peace — and the confrontation with loss and death.
Singing, dancing and visualization are essential to all cultures. UN\ROOTED presents a juxtaposition of these different forms of expression and creates a fascinating tale out of different stories.
In a compelling way, UN\ROOTED combines prose and poetry from different countries and periods: A pianist, singers, dancers and visual artists weave a colorful and diverse fabric of humankind's seeking and yearnings that each of us can relate to. Explore passion, desire and deep emotions as part of the journey called life with haunting music by great composers from three centuries.
UN\ROOTED asks questions:
What is important in our lives? What are we rooted in? In a culture, a language, a religion, a place, another human being? What drives us?
UN\ROOTED is fun and pleasure: Wonderful music, great lyrics, strong emotions, wit. A journey that brings you to many exciting places without leaving the theater.

HUB CITY OPERA AND DANCE COMPANY connects the community with important old and new works that educate and entertain, bringing together amateur and professional singers, musicians, dance and visual artists to create performance art unheard and unseen before.
We strive to provide children at the elementary through high school level with opportunities to discover and nurture a love of the arts. We are actively looking to expand our network of partner schools.
We search for the hidden gems of opera and make them accessible to modern audiences. Our emphasis on little-known works set our productions apart.
We partner with local community leaders to spread the joy of opera and dance to a wider audience and create a space for local performers to express themselves through art.
