Action Function features a group of artists presenting their concepts and ongoing research projects through short performances.

Tal Gafni will fold a flat basketball court into a three-dimensional structure, examining which historical and mythical spaces can be conjured when a ball and a court come together. Mai Aylon will share her search of Agave throughout Israel, presenting her attempts to join the enormous plant's invisible parts and monitor its ability to spread in hidden places. Tal Alperstein will present a lecture that encodes artwork into words and sounds, inspired by artists Kandinsky and Jodorowsky's thoughts and her personal experience with encoding. Rotem Volk will present a two-group performance inspired by artist Yoko Ono's work, Yes. Volk created the project for the Amphi's partitioned space. Shani Tamari Matan will perform a solo dance investigating the Unison, featuring dancers performing the same movements simultaneously in equal intervals. Naama Bar-Or will present her study of fashion house Balenciaga, exploring how the company's images transition into other content worlds. (Director: Li Lorian)
