Yves Labelle graduated from the Université de Montréal in visual art, sociology and communication. He has been making experimental and fiction videos since 1988. His work has been shown in Europe, Latin America, North Africa and Canada. His latest film, Opéra, Le Cartographe Animé, was recently nominated for a Jutrade award as best art and experimental video. In 1993, Yves Labelle, Jimmy Lakatos and Louis Veillette fonded the multimedia collective SYNERGIE. He has worked as a stage designer on several major Montreal events such as ISEA 95, Neksus and Helter Skelter at the Théâtre Momentum. “Synergie”, one critic wrote, lays the groundwork for the aestheticism of the 1990s (Voir, vol 8, no. 19 ). Yves Labelle began an association with PRIM, Centre d’arts médiatiques, in 1989 and has worked there as technical director and an instructor of video editing and directing workshops. Since then he has been active in teaching the use of video in theatre in Montreal, Belgium and at the I.N.A. in France. He also employs his talents as a stage designer for theatre. Some of his most recent work includes Oreille, Tigre et Bruits at the Théâtre d’Aujourd’hui, EQUUS at the Théâtre Jean-Duceppe, Les Aveugles at the Théâtre Ubu, Grid and La Marche de Rama at the NTE, Désordre Publique at Espace Go and La complainte de Dulcinée by Dulcinée Langfelder.
