The Troth is a live theatre production presented by Akademi, the UK's leading producer of Indian dance. It unfolds the poignant narrative of an Indian soldier in the trenches of the First World War through the interplay between image, music and dance.
The production marks the centenaries of World War 1, Indian cinema and the first Hindi short story (Usne Kaha Tha by Chandradhar Sharma Guleri). It reveals the contribution to the war effort of Indian soldiers. Over 1.3 million Indians were on active service over the course of the war, the largest voluntary force ever assembled, and their losses were staggering.
