About the Creatives
Jack Lister is an Australian dancer, choreographer, and filmmaker. After graduating from The Australian Ballet School, Jack joined Queensland Ballet in 2014 and danced many featured roles within the vast classical and modern repertoire.
After creating his first work in 2015, Jack quickly established a name as a respected emerging maker, recognised by The Australian’s national dance critic as “a young choreographer who is going places”. He has gone on to create works for Queensland Ballet, Birmingham Royal Ballet, and Australasian Dance Collective, presented throughout Australia, United Kingdom, China and Germany to critical and audience acclaim. In collaboration with Director Ryan Renshaw, Jack’s film works have been screened globally at multiple prestigious film festivals, garnering numerous awards.
In 2020, Jack joined the Australasian Dance Collective as a Company Artist and was appointed Associate Choreographer with Queensland Ballet, and in 2022, he was appointed the Creative Associate with Australasian Dance Collective.
