The Troth - India tour

Akademi's India tour of The Troth - Usne Kaha Tha continues.

Inspired by the classic Hindi short story written by Chandradhar Sharma Guleri (1915), the action moves from the intense life of rural India to the horrific darkness of the trenches in Belgium where young Indian men have been taken to fight for the Allied Forces. As the drama unfolds, we learn about the secret promise made by one soldier, Lehna Singh, as he makes the ultimate sacrifice to save another.

Marking the centenary of World War I, award-winning choreographer Gary Clarke unfolds the poignant narrative through contemporary dance, with film and specially-commissioned music by Shri Sriram.

Fri 2 Feb | Bharat Bhavan Trust, Bhopal
Sun 4 Feb | Tarang Auditorium Jabalpur
Thurs 8 Feb | Haryana Kala Parishad, Multi Art Cultural Centre, Kurukshetra
