Recipient of a host of four and five-star reviews, Akademi’s award-winning dance theatre show The Troth, presented in association with the British Army, comes to the Royal Welsh College of Music & Drama, Cardiff on Friday 9 November to make the forthcoming Armistice Day Sunday.

Choreographed by Gary Clarke, The Troth tells a story of love, loss and sacrifice against the backdrop of the First World War through dance, music and film. Over 1.3 million Indians contributed active service during the war - they were the largest voluntary force ever assembled and their losses were staggering.

Based on an iconic Hindi short story from 1915, The Troth tells the story of one soldier and the sacrifice he makes in the trenches of Belgium to keep his secret promise to an unrequited love. Wartime archive footage and new subtitled films by Josh Hawkins unfold the narrative to stunning effect. BASCA award-winning composer Shri Sriram’s original composition is laced with evocative sounds from World War I and Indian folk music. The British Armed Forces advised the creative team on military training, movement, aesthetics and music of the period.

The six superb performers are Dom Coffey, Mithun Gill, Alistair Goldsmith, Deepraj Singh, Subhash Viman Gorania and Vidya Patel, finalist in BBC Young Dancer of the Year 2015 who has performed to great acclaim with Richard Alston Dance Company.
