Comedians, poets, dancers, actors, musicians, artists, writers, directors, producers, composers… Dubai’s watched and welcomed many performers and creators join its ranks as passions for the arts flourish and grow to new heights. Within recent years, we’ve seen it explode, and we have happily been a part of that explosion. But, with that local, on-the-ground scene growing from the grassroots, we recognized the need for a new, versatile space that could be home for all of the community’s performing artists and groups.Put The Junction into our Dubai journey planning tool and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.
And so in 2015, The Junction was conceived of and built as a space where local and regional talent can thrive, where creators and performers can risk to be original, where collaboration and mutual development can occur, and where an appreciation for the arts can be cultivated within Dubai’s audiences.
Located in Alserkal Avenue amongst many other creative spaces and concepts, The Junction is home to a fully-equipped stage and performance hall with 159 comfortable seats for spectators to enjoy every act. We have a dividable multi-function room for workshops, practice sessions, dressing rooms or any other behind-the-scenes work.
As Dubai attracts many professional acts, traveling troupes, West End performances and Broadway talent, we aim to be the place where Dubai’s residents and regional talents can express themselves, hone their talents, and show that Dubai’s arts and culture are thriving on all sides.
