I use to stage manage in the theater. One of the responsibility of  
the stage manager was recording blocking of the actors, such as "X- 
downstage" and "Pickup Book". These details were written into the  
script as were light and sound cues.

It is probably worth pointing out there has been a variety of attempt  
to come up with notations for recording choreography.  You'd think a  
video tape of a dance might be enough, but in fact, a video leaves  
out many details of weighting, etc.

I'm not sure what can be done with all this in microformats. I think  
I wanted to point out that performing arts involves movement, light,  
and sound, and not just language.
