Veronica C. Combs, an accomplished producer, director, facilitator/teacher with an extensive background in the performing arts, has been producing groundbreaking lesbian performance programming in the Bay Area for the last eight years. She is the founder and director of Liquid Fire Productions, an organization dedicated to the authentic representation of lesbians of color on stage and in film. She is the mastermind behind The Liquid Fire Project, a project in which lesbians of color, through a 5-month workshop and rehearsal process, develop multidisciplinary performances from their life stories that reclaim and celebrate race and erotic power. Through Liquid Fire Productions, she also produces the annual event, WET, an erotic cabaret style event for queer women of color. During her tenure as Artistic Director of Luna Sea Women’s Performance Project in San Francisco from 1995 to 1998, Veronica produced and directed several festivals and performances including Women of Color Month (September 1996 & 1997), featuring Juke Joint, Sistahs Singin’ and the first incarnations of The Liquid Fire Project; and Disputed Territory (June 1996 – 1998), featuring performances that addressed issues considered taboo in the queer community. She produced and co-directed the 1996 production of Skin: the Black and White of It (African American and White lesbians explore racism) with Rhodessa Jones and Adele Prandini. Veronica has received several grants and awards including the California Arts Council Artist-In-Residence, San Francisco Arts Commission, Astraea Lesbian Action Foundation, Horizons Foundation, and The Women’s Foundation
