Akademi presents The Troth/ Usne Kaha Tha
“The memory becomes luminous just before death…”
Akademi’s new physical dance work tells a gripping wartime story of love and loss.
Marking the centenary of World War I, choreographer Gary Clarke unfolds the poignant narrative through dance, music and silent film.
The Troth is a powerful live theatre production inspired by a classic Hindi short story, Usne Kaha Tha. As the action moves from rural India to the trenches of Belgium, we learn of the secret promise made by one soldier, Lehna Singh, as he makes the ultimate sacrifice to save another.
Part of UK-India Year of Culture 2017.
