Parade troupes are an integral part of paying respect to deities in Taiwan’s folk belief festivities. Despite the long-standing reverence for such festivities in Taiwanese society, many controversies have emerged in recent years, in which public temples, temple altars, and bad troupes have infiltrated campuses to entice failing students into their control through drugs or violence. Sadly, with so much negative news, the public no longer sees such festivities in such a positive light.

However, “Chio Tian Folk Drums & Arts Troupe” is determined to overturn these negative labels by providing “bad kids” with a strict regimen and systematic training to transform them into professional performers. In recent years, these former troupe leaders have successfully transformed traditional parade troupes into internationally renowned performance troupes. Chio Tian carries the responsibility of blazing new trails for the nation’s traditional heritage and ensuring that the world has an opportunity to witness the beauty of Taiwan’s traditional culture.

以下为中文对照

「阵头」是台湾民间祭祀、庙会喜庆的民俗活动,也是台湾神主祭祀的文化资产。虽然享有盛名,但是近年来却出现不少争议,许多公庙、庙坛和不良阵头渗入校园吸收中辍学生,并透过毒品或是暴力来控制团员,种种负面新闻让民众对这个重要的祭典活动失去好感。

然而「九天民俗技艺团」立志翻转阵头的负面标籤,在严格的团规、有系统的训练下,人们眼中的「坏小孩」成为了专业的表演者。原为阵头团体的他们,近年来将表演艺术化,也让传统阵头团体成功转型为国际知名表演团体。九天背负着传统文化的创新传承,只为了让世人看到台湾传统文化的美丽。

Temple parade kids aren’t bad
