The "Mechanical Ballet" is now called "Stage organisation with Simple Forms". This new term is more exact, since mechanical is usually taken to mean something purely machinelike, which was not the case for the mechanical Ballet, as the forms were being moved by people.

Kurt Schmidt

A dynamic concentration of action presented with the means of form, movement, sound and light design will be named "the mechanical eccentricity".
