Hok Konishi Used 4,000 Pieces of Paper to Create This Mind-Bending Dance Video

July 24, 2019

What happens when one fabulously talented b-boy/choreographer/director spends more than 300 hours meticulously cutting and arranging 4,000+ pieces of paper? A three-minute video that will leave you absolutely floored.

You probably know Hok Konishi best as a dancer: He’s a Quest Crew standout and an alum of “So You Think You Can Dance” Season 3. But Hok’s also a gifted director and Emmy-winning choreographer. And those skills are on full display in “Quizás,” a new short film that uses stop-motion animation to tell an arresting dance story. It features the same incredible attention to detail that made his performance in the iconic “Hummingbird and the Flower” routine so mesmerizing.

“Quizás” is currently showing at A+D Museum in downtown L.A. Check out the behind-the-scenes video to see exactly how Hok created the innovative work.
