Nureyev: All The World His Stage (Cert TBC) This moving documentary from BAFTA nominated directors Jacqui and David Morris traces the extraordinary life of Rudolf Nureyev, the famous dancer who transcended fame in the dance world to become a pop culture icon of his time. It charts his rise from humble beginnings to his eventual defection to the West, an event that shocked the world. The film contextualises not just the man but also the times in which he lived, discussing the politically charged divide between Russia and the West, and the critical role that Nureyev played as a global phenomenon. Blending neverbefore-seen footage, an original score by composer Alex Baranowski, and a series of dance tableaux directed by Royal Ballet alumnus Russell Maliphant, Nureyev is a theatrical and cinematic experience like no other biopic. Tuesday at 7.15pm.

NT Live: King Lear Thursday at 7pm.
