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).
