Her works include Passover Seder – Artist’s Cut, a visual theater as performative dinner (The Red House 2018), the exhibition Over My Dead Body in collaboration with Hadar Mitz (Hanina Gallery 2017), Is The Artist Present?, an ongoing digital performative act (Art Space gallery 2017), The Assumptions, practice (Binyamin Gallery 2016), Self Simulation choreography (Print Screen Festival 2016) and many more.

In addition to her own artistic research, Savyon collaborates with choreographers as a dancer, edits and conducts poetry evenings, works as an artistic consultant and teaches probability at Tel Aviv University and at The Academic College of Tel Aviv-Yaffo.
