In the German circus instead of live animals began to use holograms
Traditional circus with animals often causes resentment among animal rights activists. Animals in such circuses often do not have access to nature and spend their entire lives in small cages, forced to perform tricks and punished for disobedience with lashes or stun guns.
Some countries have even officially banned the use of wild animals for entertainment shows — for example, in the Netherlands, Ireland and Mexico. One of the circuses in Germany, the Roncalli circus, went even further — they replaced all their animals with holograms.
Circus Roncalli (Roncalli) was founded in 1976, but the current management of this institution decided not to hold on to its history and completely abandon tricks using live animals. Acrobats remained in the performances, but animals were replaced by 3D-holograms.
Roncalli’s show uses images of elephants, horses, and fish that move within the arena. To do this, the circus has signed a contract with the company Bluebox to install 11 holographic projectors, so that the audience, wherever they sit, sees the same quality picture.
The audience speaks very favorably about this show. “It’s the same difference between theater and cinema in the second, too, there are living people right in front of you, but it does not prevent to create a great show,” says one of the visitors of the new show.
