"As an artist, I want my work to reach everyone in the world, because I believe it has something to say to everyone in the world! From a marketing point of view, of course, we begin by targeting audiences who are likely to relate to the themes--migrants, women, members of the South Asian and African diasporas.
What I have learned from touring my work internationally, however, is never to make assumptions about who my 'target audience' should be. I have found that the work genuinely crosses all boundaries of race, gender, culture, and even language.
the most telling example of this is that the book of Migritude has been published in Italy, and translated into Italian. At the book launch in Genoa, the owner of the bookshop where we sold the launch (a male Italian scientist) said how powerfully the poems spoke to his own experience of growing up in Calabria, an economically marginalized region of Italy. How could I have imaged that?"

Shailja Patel, excerpted from her interview with Vanita Reddy in Migritude.

Migritude

Published by Kaya Press
By Shailja Patel.

The U.S. debut of internationally acclaimed poet and performance artist Shailja Patel, Migritude is a tour-de-force hybrid text that confounds categories and conventions. Part poetic memoir, part political history, Migritude weaves together family history, reportage and monologues to create an achingly beautiful portrait of women's lives and migrant journeys undertaken under the boot print of Empire. Patel, who was born in Kenya and educated in England and the U.S., honed her poetic skills in performances of this work that have received standing ovations throughout Europe, Africa and North America. She has been described by the Gulf Times as "the poetic equivalent of Arundhati Roy" and by CNN as "the face of globalization as a people-centered phenomenon of migration and exchange." Migritude includes interviews with the author, as well as performance notes and essays.
