Saturday's best TV: Performance Live: Akala Presents The Ruins of Empires; Salamander - The Guardian - by Theguardian

If you can’t imagine ever finding yourself at a live poetry performance of a Saturday night, then this is a horizon-widening opportunity. Poet and activist Akala performs an abridged version of his epic work with an introduction from Daniel Kaluuya, a score by Mala, plus a host of other dancers and actors. The subject matter is his take on human history, incorporating reincarnation and astral travel, so it also makes for an ideal follow-up to the rebooted Civilisations. Ellen E Jones

Saturday's best TV: Performance Live: Winged Bull in the Elephant Case; Below the Surface - The Guardian - according to Theguardian

When the second world war broke out, the National Gallery’s art collection was evacuated to Snowdonia. This performance piece reimagines the journey of the paintings, represented in human form. The elements range from classical to grime, ballet to the spoken word of Isaiah Hull. Its components are excellent – the music, venturing into immersive ambient techno, and the dancing of Bonetics among others. Whether it coheres is another matter, but do decide for yourself.

Saturday's best TV: Mystery Road; Performance Live: Hofesh Shechter's Clowns - according to Theguardian

This slow-burning six-part Australian drama is a spin-off from Ivan Sen’s films Mystery Road and Goldstone. The pace reflects the speed of life on a remote cattle station in western Australia, where a pair of backpackers happen upon an abandoned pickup truck with an empty petrol tank and the keys still in the ignition. Who was at the wheel? Local cop Emma James (the brilliant Judy Davis) enlists the help of indigenous detective Jay Swan (Aaron Pedersen), a man of few words who embarks on an unconventional investigation. Mike Bradley
