According to a statement, the performance is part of the delegation's tour to eight countries, which is held to celebrate Chinese New Year and welcome the Spring Festival.

In Jakarta, the event was hosted by the Jakarta Taiwan Entrepreneur Association and Association of Taiwan Alumni in Indonesia (ICATI Jakarta). The acrobatic performance, combined with dance and drama was chosen as it represents multiculturalism in China, hence improving the arts and culture exchange between countries.

Prior to arriving in Jakarta, the troupe performed in Medan, North Sumatra, on Sunday. On March 7, the troupe is scheduled to perform in Bandung, West Java. (jes/mut)
