Dubai Community Theatre & Arts Centre (DUCTAC) aims to contribute to the creative and cultural development of Dubai by presenting and hosting a programme of events and participatory activities for Dubai’s many multi-national communities and visitors alike.
The Theatre & Arts Centre is the first modern, non-profit, cross-community creative centre in the Gulf. This flagship project was the brainchild of local theatre-lovers, arts enthusiasts, artists and business people who recognised the need for an entertainment and educational centre for the community and future generations of Dubai.
Located on floor two of Mall of the Emirates, and spanning some 77,952 ft sq (7,424 m sq) the venue includes:
a 543 seat theatre
a 151 capacity studio theatre
a high specification visual arts gallery
dance and rehearsal studios
art studios, workshops and classrooms - including a pottery, sculpture and mosaic workshop
food and beverage facilities
The centre is also home to an Arts Materials Shop and The Old Library.
DUCTAC hosts and produces a huge variety of shows, events, exhibitions, workshops and classes spanning almost every creative genre.
Dubai Community Theatre & Arts Centre was built thanks to the commitment and support of many leading companies and individuals who participate in the Centre's Patronage and Corporate Sponsorship Schemes.
