The Troth on Friday 9th November 2018
Friday 9 November 7.30pm
A gripping story of love and loss set during World War I, blending contemporary dance, original music and archive film. Moving from rural Punjab to the horrific darkness of the Belgian trenches where young Indian men have been brought to fight for the Allies, we learn about the secret promise made by one soldier, Lehna Singh, as he makes the ultimate sacrifice to save another.
Akademi’s new international dance theatre production is inspired by the classic Hindi short story Usne Kaha Tha. Direction and Choreography by Gary Clarke, with music by Shri Sriram.
Presented in association with the British Army.
