A sequence of music, poems and prose on the theme of constraint. Artists have struggled against restriction, yearning for freedom and yet edges and boundaries can also be tremendous stimuli. Siobhan Redmond and John Rowe read poems and prose by Rosa Luxemburg, Andrew Marvell, Billy Collins and Emily Dickinson with music by Ethel Smyth, John Cage, Benjamin Britten and Francis Poulenc.
