Tahni Holt's been tooling with this Machine for about nine months now, and the performance being staged at Disjecta this weekend is almost completely different from what Holt and her team of collaborators originally showed during Portland2010, Disjecta's biennial of contemporary art. Holt theorizes that culture is a constant feedback loop, a place where we are consistently trying to construct meaning from our interactions and experiences. It's a bit of a heady theory to stage, but it's one that Holt and crew are determined to flesh out through a series of gestures set on repeat, accompanied by a sound design that can be both transcendent and extremely jarring. The resulting performance is a comment on narrative structure and how our culture (or culture in general) relies on the formation of stories to find meaning. NOAH DUNHAM
