TAITUNG, TAIWAN (TTNews) - Folk performance groups and martial art troupes play a significantly prominent role for the duration of Taitung Lantern Festival events. Such as blessing pilgrim processions, sweeping street activities, folk evening shows, etc. are all focused on the opening scene performed by folk performance groups. Taitung boasts a considerable number of excellent folk performance groups and martial art troupes, in which YiZhengXuan Performance Group is famed for bringing people an array of brilliant and fascinating folk performances and shows.

YiZhengXuan Performance Group’s General Commanders (Guan Jiang Shou) troupe is comprised of 10 members, including YingYang Master (also known as spirit master), leading mediator and eight generals. The former four generals each will respectively hold a fire stick, tiger plate, aluminum pillory and handcuff, and the latter four generals each will also respectively carry a broadsword, nailed board, hammer, and tiger head-shaped chopper. During the procession, the performers will need to accurately and smoothly perform the certain steps. Each set of steps represents a different meaning.

The primary mission of Guan Jiang Shou is to lead the way and safeguard the gods or goddesses against from unexpected events. Their jobs are to explore the way ahead and report the conditions at any time, as the role of modern officials’ bodyguards. The form of Guan Jiang Shou tends to bring people the impression of a more masculine, fierce, tough and majestic image.
