Mad Max performed live, a Bjork cabaret and more: Stonnington Jazz reveals 2018 program

A sprawling program fueled by the spirit of discovery. 

Stonnington Jazz has returned with a stellar 2018 program, with some of Australia's finest jazz musicians taking over the area across ten huge days. 

Program highlights include Mad Jazz 3: Beyond Thunderdome -- screening George Miller's apocalyptic classic at The Astor theatre with a live interpretation from fusion visionaries The Shaolin Afronauts. 

Jazz In Colour: Swooping Duck with Zero Crossing sees the Grammy-nominated Hiatus Kaiyote collaborators perform in a mesmerising audio-visual experience. Expect the unexpected when colour becomes the fourth instrument of improvisation in this special offering.   

Bjork: Interpreted finds the work of Iceland's most renowned musical export find new life through the lens of Mama Alto, electronic artist Tom Barton, and singer-songwriter Hannah Cameron -- paired with specially created projection art. 

Capping it off comes James Morrison opening the Festival Hub, Australian piano virtuoso Dr. Judy Bailey and a collision of dance and jazz in A Glimpse Behind Closed Doors, and more.

Stonnington Jazz runs from May 10 – 20 in venues throughout the area. Full program details are live now
