Our Dad Is In Atlantis (Translation)

As a Translator:
by Javier Malpica
translated from the Spanish by Jorge Ignacio Cortiñas

Two young brothers struggle on their own after their father emigrates to the United States, leaving them behind in Mexico. A haunting play, written in direct and winsome language, that charms even as it sets us up for a devastating emotional impact. Javier Malpica has made an end run around polemics and written a play that takes an unflinching look at children caught in the indifferent logic of a globalized world where capital is allowed to migrate freely but people are not. Cortiñas’s translation deftly captures all the minor keys of the original; the tone is effortlessly rendered in clear English.
