Circus Roncalli has swapped out horses, lions, and elephants from their circus and done something unimaginable by using holograms. But, still, the show entertains the crowds since 1976 and remains spectacular.
They wanted to fight animal cruelty which has been a huge issue in the booming industry.
There are tusks, tails and an array of acrobats and fiery circles in this show, the surprising thing is that not a single animal is real. They recreated the magnificent 3D holographic imagery with projectors which fill an arena measuring 32 meters (105 feet) wide and 5 meters (16 feet) deep with a view of 360° in order to give the joy to the entire audience.
Roncalli’s agency, TAG/TRAUM, has joined forces with Bluebox who has partnered with Optoma who have installed 11 ZU850 laser projectors throughout the arena, in order to provide an amazing experience for the audience.
Birger Wunderlich at Bluebox said, “We have been using Optoma projectors for 6 years and have consistently had a very positive experience in price, performance, and reliability. We needed a high contrast projector with great colors for the 3D effect and the ZU850’s 2,000,000:1 contrast is perfect for this project.”
They depict their bold moves when animal living conditions in captivity are under dire concern.
There are many circuses where people treat animals such as beating, starving and keeping their performing animals under the most unsanitary conditions, being forced to perform for massive crowds night on the night on very tight schedules.
The UK government has taken a great start by presenting with legislation that would ban all traveling circuses from utilizing wild animals from the year 2020 onwards.
