The Troth is a live theatre production inspired by a classic 100-year old 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.

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 powerful contemporary dance, evocative music and archive film. Through this live silent film experience, the audience will be transported to a peaceful rural Punjab in late 1800s before finding themselves mid-conflict in the Belgian trenches.

Created as part of UK-India Year of Culture 2017, The Troth features some of the UK’s most exciting and versatile young dancers and is directed by a leading, award-winning choreographer.

Presented by ArtsEkta – Northern Ireland’s leading ethnic arts organisation.
