Quebec native Dominic Lacasse began his current acrobatic career after seven years of gymnastics and 14 years of circus performance. Chosen to represent the flag of his own country in the official celebrations of 400 years of the city of Quebec, Dominic has developed and perfected the art of the "human flag" that he brought to a higher level and turned into an artistic discipline.
Since then, known as “The Flag Man”, Dominic has been in growing demand, travelling around the world to demonstrate this impressive routine. He has performed for countless live audiences and on high-profile television shows including The Ellen Degeneres Show, Le Plus Grand Cabaret du Monde and La France a un incroyable talent (France has incredible talent), among others.
In November 2007, Dominic appeared on the Guinness World Records™ show when he set a record for the longest human flag, holding the position for an impressive 39 seconds. He has also been awarded several circus festival prizes, including the Special Prize (Monte-Carlo 2009); Silver (Wuqiao-China 2009) and Bronze (Izhevsk-Russia 2010).
