The FPAC Ensemble training is based on a unique creative methodology called ‘Viewpoints’ which was developed by the theatre director, Ann Bogart in the United States over 30 years ago.  

Matthew Hahn, the artistic director of The Folkestone Performing Arts Centre, is a pioneering proponent of this method of training and the only theatre-maker in Kent to use it as an ongoing training and new work development methodology.  This unique ensemble-based approach places ongoing training on an equal footing to new work development so that the ensemble is constantly developing their craft in addition to creating theatre.
