Summer Salon Series 2012: Get Mad at Sin! by Andrew Dinwiddie
Nationally recognized performer Andrew Dinwiddie re-enacts a sermon from Preacher Jimmy Swaggart. The performance, based on a now out-of-print-vinyl recording of Swaggart's 1971 speech in Arkansas, ironically attacks popular culture, especially show business, even though Swaggart is an iconic performer himself and is the cousin of rocker Jerry Lee Lewis. While Dinwiddie breathes new life into Swaggart's words, they inevitably mean something different to us then they would have originally 40 years ago.
