Christopher Darbassie


"Design shouldn't be used to provide solutions, but to offer further inquiries on the symptoms of the story."

Christopher Darbassie is a sound designer and dramaturg working in multimedia and theater. The first generation Trinidadian American aims to give breathe to Black people in storytelling and beyond. Interested in the discoveries of what it means to honor a life, Chris is charged to cultivate the exploration of alternate ways to exist, and in turn alternate ways to create. As a dramaturg, visual artist, and designer Chris has serviced installations, devised works and theatrical productions in collaboration with National Black Theater, The Movement Theater Company, WP Theater, The Bushwick Starr, Ars Nova, and Playwrights Horizons.

Outside of the theater you can find Chris trying out collecting vinyls, satisfying a sweet tooth, or praying to be on a beach somewhere.
