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.
