Looking for a video of a rotating stage/platform performance.

Years ago I saw a video that featured several people performing a choreographed movement routine on a rotating platform. The platform was level, circular, maybe 15 feet in diameter, and spun continuously at maybe 10 RPM. Since lateral acceleration was a function of radial position on the platform, people positioned near the edge of the platform leaned toward the center quite a bit, while anyone standing at the center was vertical. Walking at a particular combination of radius and speed resulted in a performer being stationary with respect to the camera. There were maybe half a dozen people on this platform, and their routine took advantage of all of these peculiarities to create an interesting performance.

Sadly, I can't seem to find this video anymore. Anyone else here seen it and know what I'm talking about? And, more importantly, where I might find it again?
