Christopher Darbassie


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

Christopher is a first-generation Trinidadian American  sound designer. He aims to utilize sound design as a guiding force in story telling, the uncovering of truths and

in finding dramaturgical discoveries. Chris has worked as a designer and composer for plays, devised works, festivals, and dance performances in collaboration with National Black Theater, The Movement Theater Company, Criminal Queerness Festival, The Bushwick Starr, The Atlantic, Long Wharf  Theater, Theater for a New Audience., and Playwrights Horizons. He has also assisted sound designers such as Dan Kluger, Lee Kinney, and Kimberly O'Loughlin.

Outside of the theater you can find Chris trying out new cooking recipes, gushing over old school R&B, or praying to be on a beach somewhere.
