Thursday Morning BALLET with Jack Lister (Ballet)
ABOUT THE CLASS
This BRUMproclass will be a BALLET CLASS, followed by explorations and repertoire from Jack’s choreographic practice.
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, Jiri Kylian, Derek Deane, Trey McIntyre 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 programme 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. Most recently, Jack’s “B-SIDES” created for Queensland Ballet’s 2018 Bespoke season was met with audience and critical acclaim, and Jack was recognised in The Australian as “a young choreographer who is going places”.
In 2019, Jack was selected as a finalist in the Beijing International Ballet and Choreography Competition, where he presented two of his works. Jack will also work with the Birmingham Royal Ballet this year on a new world premiere work to be performed across various venues in the UK, including Sadler’s Wells.
