For decades now, people couldn’t have imagined a circus without animals like elephants, horses, lion, and monkey – this was recently still used in the Greatest Showman Movie. But now, a Circus Roncalli has shunned the live animal tradition with holograms for its free magical experience.
Roncalli’s agency TAG/TRAUM in collaboration with Bluebox partnered with Optoma to install 11 ZU850 laser projectors for a memorable holographic experience.
“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.” Birger Wunderlich at Bluebox said
While the show still features fiery circles and acrobats, tusks and tails, none of the animals were real. Roncalli created 3D holographic images from projectors, filming the arena measuring about 32 meters (105ft) wide and 5 meters (16ft) deep with 3600 visibility.
The decision which resulted from concerns about how show animals living much of their lives under horrible conditions and in captivity, really did have a lot of positive feedbacks.
Several times, activists have been accusing circuses of starving, beating and keeping their animals under horrible conditions while they are equally used for performances despite their conditions.
However, in the United Kingdom, legislation before the government is ready to ban travelling circuses from using wild animals by 2020.
Accordingly, the shows did remain as spectacular as expected. The Circus Roncalli has been witnessing crowds with its animal shows since the year 1976 but decided to change things with the aim of fighting against animal cruelty in the industry.
