Photograph of Martha Graham and Dance Group in Heretic.
"The action outlines the stiff-necked, merciless cruelty and oppression of intolerance against a figure pleading for tolerance. Stark, elemental tragedy presented with a taut economy of means. The music (an old Breton song) consists of only eleven measures played over and over."
Premiere of Heretic: April 14, 1929 – Booth Theater, New York City
