Ramleela performances are already in underway in some communities across the country and will continue over the next two weeks.
Ramleela is a sacred drama telling the story of the life of Lord Rama – the seventh avatar of the Hindu deity Vishnu. This Leela (play) was originally created by the 17th Century saint poet Tulsidas.
Ramleela – an epic tale of love, loss, betrayal and the triumph of good over evil is performed over several nights and is an integral part of Trinidad and Tobago’s cultural landscape thanks to our North Indian ancestors who brought this ancient tradition of community theatre to our shores.
Ramleela is another example of the transformative power of masquerade, drama, song and dance.
*Please note that while these are free public shows performers spend weeks in fasting and meditation. Please refrain from alcohol consumption at performing spaces and be mindful and respectful of etiquette regarding clothing and other guidelines set by groups.
