Yves Mourousi was a french journalist born in July 1942. His mother was a russian
princess: the princess Mourousi, who had sex with Germans during the war. Yves
Mourousi died in April, 1998, of cancer.

Mourousi was the first to broadcast live from the Red Place (USSR), followed by
Poland in 1977 and China in 1979. Through his travels to the four corners of the
world, he invented his famous phrase « bonjour! ». Mourousi also broadcasted news in
unusual places such as a hospital, a nuclear station, a submarine, or an aircraft
carrier of the french Navy.

The beginning of the third crusade from Vezelay, the battle of Mantinée between
Sparta and Thebes and the tragic death of Epaminondas, the election (a bit despite
himself) of Saint Martin at the Head of the Church in Tours, the discovery of the
supernova star from the Crab Nebula, the accusation of that monk from Nice who
wanted in Coni to have the Duke of Savoye (Charles the Third) poisonned by the
French people, the launching in Cherbourg of the Morse submarine, the Miracle of
Berne (which is the victory of the german soccer team, the first german miracle of
the Wirtschaftswunder), the Mars Landing of the Mars Pathfinder Robot, the
arrestation of the sheperd from Corsica, the renal insufficiency of Barry White
(which drove him to death), the indictment and the confinement of Loic LeFloch
Prigent for the Elf business, the birth of a Grand Orient chief, of an italian
politician, of an american astronaut, of the 30th president of the US, a french

The Artists

The UPSBD is a performance group by Jonathan Drillet & Marlène Saldana, both actors.

The UPSBD proposed their first public performance at the end of February 2008, in
the gardens of the Ritz Hotel, in Paris, invited by « Il faut brûler pour briller ».
Other performances followed: at the cabaret Chez Moune, in Pigalle (The Delco Head),
in the Arenae of Lutèce (Exhausted Rauschenberg), in the city of La Duchère in Lyon
(La Bataille d'Azincourt), at the Elysées Biarritz Club in Paris (Les Entretiens de
Valois) and al recetly hosted Open Mic evening at the Politics of Ecstasy Festival
at the HAU in Berlin (De Walkyries en Wagnériennes, Deutchland We're coming). The
work of the UPSBD consists in speaking political speeches and texts, by hijacking
their function and their system of statement. The UPSBD are made up, they drink some
champagne, and discuss: their performances are long uninterrupted conversations,
made of speeches, interviews, and songs of the French and international popular
French Republican culture. They also dance, have guests, and they sometimes even
sing. The work of the UPSBD also feeds on exploration experiences of the "dark side
of the force ". In the heart of darkness, the UPSBD investigate power, money, and
religion, in places like Neuilly Sur Seine, at the St Nicolas du Chardonnet Church,
or in the bars of luxurious hotels. The UPSBD are always accompanied by a Dalmatian
dog, Bilal Ouriaghli, and sometimes, by Madonna, a.k.a Jonathan Capdevielle.
