Under the warm glow of dim lights, poets from all walks of life gathered at a restaurant in Dubai’s Al Barsha on Tuesday for an evening of spoken word.

Hosted by Just Entertainment, a UAE-based startup specializing in spoken word and comedy events, the gathering turned the stage into a canvas for the expression of the poets’ deepest emotions. Age and background did not matter, and the power of the spoken word reigned supreme.

The poets delved into topics as diverse as human existence itself: personal relationships, the trials and tribulations of coming of age, and even weighty topics such as political and regional conflicts.

Instead of traditional applause, the audience was encouraged to snap their fingers during the performances. This subtle change added an extra layer of intimacy and engagement, allowing the wordsmiths on stage to maintain their flow without interruption.

Just Entertainment was co-founded in 2021 by Alysia Knowles, a full-time photographer and poet, and Maher Barwany, a comedian.

The startup, Knowles said, was born out of a desire for more personal and intimate events. Her events move between various locations in Dubai and Abu Dhabi.

The audience is a diverse mix of people from all backgrounds: Generation Z, mothers of teenagers, people wearing Keffiyeh scarves, and an equal balance of men and women; It’s like an open invitation to everyone. You are welcome to step forward and share your poetry, or simply enjoy the beauty of the spoken word.
