After creating his first work for QB in 2015, Lister quickly established a name as a respected emerging maker, recognised in The Australian as “a young choreographer who is going places.” He has gone on to create mainstage works for Queensland Ballet, Birmingham Royal Ballet and Australasian Dance Collective, presented throughout Australia, United Kingdom, China and Germany to critical and audience acclaim.

Since joining ADC, Lister has collaborated on new creations and performed in works by Hofesh Shechter, Melanie Lane, Cass Mortimer Eipper,  Gabrielle Nankivell and Amy Hollingsworth.

For ADC, Lister created his first full-length work Aftermath. The co-creation with ADC Artistic Director, Amy Hollingsworth, and acclaimed Australian recording artist, Danny Harley was met with audience and critical acclaim, described by The Courier Mail as “one of the most compelling performances I have ever witnessed.”Still Life, his first solo mainstage commission for ADC, premiered in 2021 and was hailed as “exquisite, absorbing and poignant”.

Lister has also collaborated with director, Ryan Renshaw, creating films which have screened at festivals worldwide. Their works have received award recognition at San Francisco Dance Film Festival and LA Dance Film Festival with their latest creation, Still Life, winning both Best Australian Film and Best of the Fest at the Inspired Film Festival.

In January 2022, Lister was appointed Creative Associate of ADC.
