restricted access Performing in the Lap and at the Feet of God: Ramleela in Trinidad, 2006–2008

The island of Trinidad is home to one of the world’s largest annual performances of the Hindu epic drama known locally as Ramleela. Far away from their ancestral homeland, Indo-Trinidadians perform their own identities as a Caribbean people in a drama of exile that hauntingly replicates their diasporic experience.
