    Cirque du Soleil's "O" was featured in the Discovery Channel TV show "Time Warp" with hosts MIT's Jeff Lieberman & Matt Kearney, episode from June 19, 2009. The episode is called "Las Vegas Warped" and featured next to Cirque's show "O" some juggling by Penn Teller. "Time Warp" basically captures things in "slow motion", which is very interesting in many cases, especially if the events are typically fast paste in real-life. I edited the pieces together to shorten the stuff and added music by Benoit Jutras for the "Cirque like" show "Le Reve" by Franco Dragone at the Wynn in Las Vegas. The track is called "Chapel" (track 4 on the OST CD). I featured slow motion video images for some of the acts of the show "Corteo" a couple months ago. Check out those videos as well. Pretty cool stuff. You can find them, if you do a search for "corteo tokyo". using the search box in my user profile (not the site wide search).
