Chio-Tian Folk Drums & Arts Troupe Performs in NYC

May 22, 2015 @ 7:15 pm - 9:00 pm

$10

Its been 2 years since Chio-Tian Folk Drums & Arts Troupe have performed for the New York City audience at Lincoln Center Out of Doors and 8 years since their last Passport to Taiwan Festival performance.

Passport to Taiwan 2015 and the Taiwanese American Association of New York – TAANY (大紐約區台灣同鄉會) is proud to invite Chio-Tian to once again perform in New York City at two different venues in May of 2015

Founded in 1995 by Hsu Cheng-Rong; Chio-Tian has made a name for itself through the methods in which they have taken traditional Taiwanese temple performing arts to the stage thus gaining recognition abroad and at home for their contribution to promoting a very unique culture of Taiwan.

They are also recognized in Taiwan as a troupe that helps to give delinquent youths of Taiwan a second chance in life through a strict yet educational regime of performance and self-endurance. They provide a sense of family for these youths who have lost their way and through encouragement and at times discipline, these youths are able to turn their lives around and start anew.

Hosted by the Taiwanese American Association of New York in collaboration with the New York Taiwan Center; Chio-Tian will perform a special presentation on Friday May 22nd, 2015 to help raise funds to subsidize the costs of airfare, transportation and meals that they have to provide out of pocket for this trip. All ticket funds will be donated to Chio Tian.
