Yes is a long time

Yes is a long time is a dance-theater show based on the true story of an ordinary family who are confronted with an extraordinary event – a mysterious object crashes through the roof of their suburban New Jersey home. The family must decide if they will turn the rock over to authorities to confirm its cosmic origins or listen to their intuition about this object’s seemingly auspicious arrival. Yes is a long time explores the act of looking up, believing and claiming your destiny in a world of random coincidences.
