In the year 2002 they decided to base the centre for the children
and their parents aboard the boat called Peniche Antipode and since then plays for both
children and adults have been presented regularly.
The Abricadabra Theatre on board the Peniche Antipode is docked on the River Seine across from 69 Quai de la Seine, which is located
in the 19th arrondissement of Paris, France.
Also for the pleasure of parents, there is a lovely bar that offers a variety of fair
trade products to buy, but bear in mind that it is only docked in Paris from the beginning
of September until the end of June, but excludes the month of January.
This is a unique experience with a wide variety of shows and concerts and you can have a look
at their website that is full of photographs, but it is in French only, but you can
translate this using someone like google.
They also do theatre classes and for adolescents these are held on a Wednesday from 4:30pm
through to 6:30pm and for adults they are held on a Monday from 8pm through to
10:30pm. For more information you can contact them on telephone number 1 60 15 24
The Fair Trade Bar is open at different times and has themed activities from different
discussions and exhibitions through to educational games and you can get to meet like
minded people over a fair trade drink.
On Saturdays and holidays it opens from 2pm and on Wednesdays and Sundays it opens at
5pm. If the weather is not nice or it is cold, then this will be held within the
boat, or if it is warm, then drinks, etc are taken on to the deck, which enables everyone
to enjoy the views.
The Peniche Antipode can also be rented out for your cocktail party, conference, photo
shoots, shows, weddings etc and the boat is very well equipped with light and sound, a bar, stage and a lovely deck area, which
definitely make a venue with a difference.
For further information about renting this, you can telephone them on 1 40 03 03 84 or the
mobile 06 50 09 64 75.
The children's theatre has lots of different productions according to age, so it is always
advisable to check when these are being shown and you can do this by telephoning 1 42 03
39 07 and the venue has a specially converted space and exhibitions for your children.
This lovely boat is designed to be friendly and welcoming and for the older people amongst
us, there are productions and comedies and floating concerts along with unusual evenings
on a Thursday, which are known as "Jeudis de la Ziq. Along with fair trade
snacks available it is a reasonable price ranging from 5 Euros to around 15 Euros
