Maya cloth dynamics help needed

Please take a look at this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BrcWVD0mwo4

 

I'm trying to simulate the above with Maya and am having difficulty getting it to work right. I think the main issue is finding the right dynamic force.

 

I need to add a force to the cloth that acts on the cloth itself relative to it's own (the changing ncloth shape) surface normals. Stretching the cloth around another object with local forces always perpendicular to the cloth itself. 

 

I've attached a short animation of what I've been able to achieve so far with radial forces and gravity.

 

I'd appreciate any help, advice, or redirection you can provide.
