The Suitcase Royale (Australia)

This award-winning trio uses music, puppetry, slapstick and a full set of found objects to create a self-styled form of junkyard theatre. In The Ballad of Backbone Joe, the band tells the story of a bare knuckle fighter in the outback and the mysterious death of his promoter Messy Dimes Dan.
