Everything in one place at our beautiful oasis in the arty, industrial area of Al Quoz 1, The Courtyard.


The Courtyard

The Courtyard is a beautiful building designed by Iranian architect Dariush Zandi. It houses various local creative businesses including art galleries, furniture designers, printers, leather art, photographic studios and our very own improv theatre, The Courtyard Playhouse. We are very lucky to have the use of the Courtyard circular foyer as the Conference and Fringe registration and meeting area as well as the outdoor courtyard where our second stage will be set up. All workshops will be taking place inside the Courtyard too, which means that there is no need for any travelling between venues and will give the Conference a truly communal, festive atmosphere.

The Courtyard Playhouse

In 2013 we built our own dedicated, auditorium. It is centrally located near the Mall of the Emirates and easily accessible from Sheikh Zayed Road where we hold three shows weekly and teach improv’ workshops for teens, adults and companies. The Courtyard Playhouse is the first and only dedicated improv’ theatre and KHDA licensed training centre in UAE. Home to Theatresports Dubai where we follow the Johnstonian approach to improvisation. As a purpose-built venue, the theatre is ideal for improvisation performances, with a set containing two built-in doors, and two windows as well as two side entrances and a central curtained arch. It is a warm, friendly and exciting venue of which we are extremely proud.
