The Troth | “A remarkable work” ⋆ ⋆ ⋆ ⋆ ⋆

May 6, 2018

Teresa Guerreiro from Culture Whisper​ reviews the London premiere of The Troth at Southbank Centre.

“The Troth is a remarkable work, which through an individual story of love and sacrifice manages to bring home the huge scale of India’s contribution to the Allied war effort; and the horrendous human cost its people paid.”

Akademi’s The Troth – Usne Kaha Tha is a gripping wartime story of love and loss, told through powerful dance theatre.

Inspired by a 1915 short story Usne Kaha Tha by Chandradhar Sharma Guleri, it tells the story of Sardar Lehna Singh’s sacrifice of keeping his secret promise to an unrequited love while mid-conflict in the horror of the trenches of Belgium.

The Troth is directed by Gary Clarke and features a specially-commissioned music score by Shri Sriram. The cast includes Vidya Patel (BBC Young Dancer 2015 finalist).
