While going through some old documents I found some unicycle hockey stuff from the early 90s. I had a quick search & couldn't find any of this online so I will be dealing with that shortly. In the meantime though one of the documents mentioned the earliest known footage of unicycle hockey can be found in Varieté, a German silent film made by Ewald André Dupont. I'd not seen this before so I dug out the full film:
Notable timestamps for me:
32:11 First performance footage, acrobatics from the Flying Codonas?
32:39 Possibly nsfw acro, some nice shots of the reflections in binoculars
33:16 Plate spinning
33:33 30 seconds of Enrico Rastelli plate juggling & mouthstick work, I believe I've seen this clip before in one of David's articles
34:44 The unicycle hockey skit. I genuinely found this amusing!
47:13 Flying trapeze, some nice shots that capture the scale of the Berlin Wintergarten theatre where it was filmed & also from the swinging trapeze itself
I like the idea of being able to drag the goals around... makes the whole thing much more silly
