Cirque du Soleil presents “Mystery of Mystère!”, a captivating
documentary on Mystère, the critically acclaimed theatrical production

anthropologist Philippe Frey, geneticist David Suzuki, physicist
Fred Alan Wolf and astrophysicist Trinh Xuan Thuan as they boldly
explore The Mysterey of Mystère through each of their fascinating
and distinctive scientific field of expertise.
As the documentary
plays on, the show and its mythology are continuously explored through
seemingly less and less relevant conversational clips from the scientists,
and the meaning of their contributions become more and more mysterious
(read: boring). Discussions about the origin of man and his relationship
to the desert notwithstanding how do relativity theory and quantum physics

- "Franco Dragone Meets the Scientists" (13:33) — Mystère's Director joins
the crew poolside at Treasure Island and an even more banal conversation with
these universal experts ensues.
- "Food for Thought" (16:00) — The scientists get their chance to voice
their concerns about topics foremost on their minds, while characters from
the show interact with the desert backdrop behind them.
- "Impressions and Interrogations" (2:37) — Earlier we’ve heard from
the scientists about what the mystery of Mystère is, now it’s time to
hear from the artists who put on the show: why does Mystère remain
popular after all these years? We hear from Brian Dewhurst (Clown),
Florence Gaillard (Dancer), Eligiusz Skoczylas (Chinese Poles), Ashley
Jean Lamb, Vladislav Lissenkov (Korean Plank), Michelle Cronje
(Dancer), Arnaud Bertrand (Dancer), Paul Cameron, and Steel Wallis in
this very short montage.
