Chio-Tian Folk Drums & Arts 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. To achieve this purpose, Chio-Tian has invited experts of various fields of the performance arts (music, dance, theater and martial arts) as instructors, and the troupe leader would teach them about folk culture in return.
As the one of the largest and most professional performance art groups in Taiwan, Chio-Tian will continue to promote and preserve Taiwan's most beautiful folk culture and serve to make Taiwan visible to the world by moving onto international stages.
