Out Of This World | Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey...

As kid I totally loved the circus and even as an adult there is still something about it that makes me nostalgic for all of the excitement that it brings. And there are getting even more exciting over at Ringling Bros & Barnum and Bailey because they are about to introduce their new technology driven show Out of This World. Which is a new circus experience that portrays a story of adventure through fire, ice and is led by the most innovating technology. The show will include a variety of acrobatic, aerial, trapeze acts and many more. Performers gather from Chile, Mexico, Paraguay and all around the world to bring unexpected surprises and amazing entertainment.


Some of the new technology features the show includes:

Projection Mapping
For the first time Ringling Bros. will be integrating projection mapping to help bring their epic space adventure to life in arenas around the country. Projection mapping utilizes specialized software that takes programmed 3D images of the production and optimizes video to project around the shapes and surfaces that have been programmed into the software. 
Portal Display
Ringling Bros. is known for its elaborate and intricate portals. The portal for Out of This World is one of the largest in their history. Included in this portal are two screens that will be used to augment the projections within the arena. They will also be available and have opportunities during the pre-show for interactive communication with audiences. 
Spotlight Tracking Technology
This tracking system can help light everything from performers to animals to props throughout the show. The system allows us to flawlessly follow and light fast-moving skaters, as well as opening a world of possibilities for various effects that could never have been accomplished with a hand-operated follow spot.  

Puffersphere/Pufferfish
The puffersphere is a round LED hi-resolution projection. In the Out of This World, the narrator will tell the story of our space odyssey in this globe. 
Out of This World kicks off in Frenso, CA tonight (July 7th) then they will travel throughout the U.S. To check local listings for a show near you check out the Ringling Bros official website.
