Following his training at The Australian Ballet School, Jack Lister joined Queensland Ballet in 2014 and has danced featured roles in works choreographed by Christopher Bruce, Nils Christe, Liam Scarlett, Derek Deane, Marc Ribaud and Natalie Weir.
After creating his first ballet for Queensland Ballet in 2015, Jack quickly established a name as a respected emerging choreographer and has created a new work for QB’s annual program each year since. In 2017, Jack was long listed for an Australian Dance Award for his work Fonder Heart, and created his first main stage work, Rational/Animal as part of Queensland Ballet’s inaugural Bespoke season to audience and critical acclaim. Jack’s Still Life, created for Queensland Ballet’s Dance Dialogues season in 2017 was recently remounted for the International Ballet Gala XXVII in Dortmund, Germany to audience acclaim.
In 2019, Jack will work with the Birmingham Royal Ballet on a new world premiere work to be performed across various venues in the UK, including Sadler's Wells.
