About POMEGRANATE:
Pomegranate is a circular story about the endurance of love over time. Suli & Cassia fall in love during their initiation into the Dionysian Mysteries in the Villa of Mysteries in ancient Pompeii, 79 AD, where they meet the Temple Priestess and her handmaiden Julia. When Vesuvius erupts they are held in time until we meet the couple again - 1984, the Fly by Night, a downtown Toronto lesbian bar. As Cass & Suzie they face the challenge of Suzie’s coming out to her conservative refugee family. The lovers are once more separated, and the story circles back to Pompeii, now in ruins, but the power of memory endures and evokes a final duet as they measure out the years of their love in pomegranate seeds.
