Calder's production of Erik Satie's "Socrate" at the Hartford Atheneum in the 1930s was in a way a giant version of his miniature circus.  A spectacle with abstract constructions moving in space.  The beginning of his work with mobiles, and an inspiration to Robert Wilson's "Einstein on the Beach."  So, Calder's interest in objects in performance has this dimension as well...

I googled Calder, and found the .org.

http://calder.org

It's got an interesting biography, but very disapointing picture content. 
They are few and of small size, very hard to appreciate the details.

I hope there is or will be some footage of the kinetic work in action.
There are probably books on the Artist and his work.
