Circus Roncalli, a German circus decided to get creative along with spreading a message about animal cruelty.

Circus Roncalli was founded in 1976 and began phasing out animal performances in the 1990s. Since 2018, the show has featured no live animals, turning instead to holographic projections with 360-degree visibility for spectators seated around the ring.

The idea is that audiences can get the same sense of wonder they would watching exotic animals in a traditional circus act — plus the bells and whistles of CGI — but because the animals are only holograms, there’s no risk of actual living things being treated inhumanely between shows.
