Following his training at The Australian Ballet School, Jack Lister joined Queensland Ballet in 2014 where he danced many featured roles. After creating his first ballet for QB 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. Most recently, Jack’s B-SIDES created for QB’s 2018 Bespoke season was met with audience and critical acclaim. Jack was recognised in The Australian as “a young choreographer who is going places.”
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. Jack has also been selected as finalist in the Beijing International Ballet and Choreography Competition, where he will present two of his works.
