About the Troupe Perfomance in San Diego
Publish Time: 2017/09/20

Performance Date: Oct. 5th, 19:00pm

Founded by Mr. Chen-Jung Hsu in 1995, the Chio-Tian Folk Drums & Art Troupe (hereafter Chio-Tian) was initially a traditional Taiwanese temple fair parade team. It has since focused its efforts on the innovation and refinement of its art and performance, elevating the traditional local parade show to a higher level of artistic quality and expertise. Artistic perfection is not the only endeavor of Chio-Tian: bearing in mind the spirit of community service, the troupe has hired professional counselors and teachers to help out-of-school teenagers reform. By introducing them to the fascination of the parade show and awaken their potential enthusiasm for performance arts, Chio-Tian brings these teenagers back to the right path and helps them build their self-esteem on the way to becoming professional performers.

Since 2007, Chio-Tian has been invited to perform in the US, Japan, Malaysia, the Philippines and other countries, while continuing to produce original theatrical programs, such as Din Tao: Leader of the Parade, Gu Shen: God of Drums, Yin Wang: The Hunt of the Plague Lord and Chio-Tian Classics Revisited. This year’s ROC Anniversary Cultural Tour, featuring the Troupe’s most famous numbers including drum parades, Kuan-tsiòng Siú (The Chief Infernal Officers) and the techno deity-puppet, is guaranteed to make our overseas compatriots reminisce their homeland and its culture. The Tour also aims to promote and preserve Taiwan’s beautiful folk culture and bring it up to the international stages.
