Heresy is a multi-stranded arts project inspired by the rediscovered Gospel of Mary Magdalene.

Although never officially labelled a heretic, Mary Magdalene’s gospel, and her particular brand of visionary Christianity, has never been officially sanctioned by the church. As the only gospel written in the name of a woman and buried for 2000 years, it is still viewed by many as illegitimate, and to claim it as scripture is to take a heretical stance. As the exiled and the edited, Magdalene’s fragmented testimony is emblematic of that which has been left out of the sacred in the West: woman and body.

Through performance, talks, workshops, installation and exhibition, this project reframes heresy as a courageous and life-giving act of transgression, that affirms a long-denied and particularly female lineage of spiritual knowledge. What does such knowing offer us now in this time of deep ecological and societal crisis?
